Slovakia has drawn almost half of EU funds

As of the end of July, the Slovak Republic has drawn Sk21.5 billion from the EU structural funds allocated for the 2004-2006 programming period.

That's just over 48 percent of the total amount allocated (Sk44.7 billion).

Under the terms of the EU funding agreement, Slovakia has until 2008 to draw the remainder of the money. It can still draw more than Sk1 billion from the 2005 allocation and Sk23.7 billion from 2004 to 2006.
