Finance Minister Brigita Schmognerová reported yesterday that the Moody’s rating agency was waiting until the passage of several tax laws in parliament, and asking for guarantees of fiscal stability after 2002 elections, before re-evaluating Slovakia. The country was stripped of its investment grade rating in 1998 under the previous Mečiar government, but under the Dzurinda administration has been working towards earning its ratings level back.
