OF 105 projects for industrial parks in Slovakia the European Union has approved funding for five. One of them, a lumber processing park in eastern Slovakia's Spišská Nová Ves, is getting 70 percent of its 2.8 million euros in start-up costs met by the EU, and has already attracted a German upholstered furniture maker, an Italian wooden construction material maker and a British toymaker. The firms are to come on line in 2003, creating 1,000 local jobs.
