Slovak organisations abroad getting more cash

ORGANISATIONS for ethnic Slovaks living abroad will get an extra Sk19.25 million (€572,000) from the state budget, the government decided at its latest session.

Of this sum, Sk3 million will be allocated in line with an agreement between Slovakia and Hungary on mutual support for ethnic minorities, while around Sk1 million will be used to support the Slovak language newspaper Ľudové Noviny (The People's Daily) in Hungary, the TASR newswire wrote.

When deciding on the grants, the cabinet took into account the conclusions of the Permanent Conference of the Slovak Republic and Slovaks Living Abroad, which took place in Bratislava in April with delegates from 23 countries.

The Permanent Conference has been held every year since 1999. This year it took place under the patronage of Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico.
