According to the draft of the state budget for 2000, 500 million crowns will be allocated to the trade-support bank EXIM Bank for support of Slovak exports. The volume of loans given in support of export activities in the year 2000 will rise 25% to 3.2 billion crowns, while the volume of exports the bank will support next year will reach 11.5 billion crowns.
