Crown strengthens on Mikloš vote

The Slovak crown yesterday strengthened 30 haliers (0.7 per cent) against its euro reference currency on news the Deputy Prime Minister for Economy, Ivan Mikloš, had kept his job in a parliamentary confidence vote early February 14. Domestic money market dealers said the currency should remain relatively strong as fears eased over interference with a major privatisation – a 49 per cent stake in gas utility SPP.
