Cabinet approves army reform, gas rises

Cabinet yesterday at its regular session approved a concept of Army reform until the year 2010 that envisages deep cuts in the numbers of personnel and equipment, designed to make the Slovak military more mobile and professional. Cabinet also approved a 19.3% increase in the prices of natural gas for corporate users as of January 1, with the price of gas to hit 90% of the real purchase cost by 2003 and 100% by 2004.
