Cabinet rejects state-guaranteed loan for EXIM

At a session November 16, cabinet passed the 2001 draft budget of Slovakia's EXIM Bank, but rejected the possibility of a state-guaranteed loan for the finance house. EXIM Bank is currently looking for a one billion crown ($20 million) loan.
Deputy Prime Minister for Economy Ivan Mikloš questioned the justification of the EXIM Bank, saying that it supports only a small part of Slovakia's exports (4.2%).
