Corruption, Roma, remain challenges

DUTCH member of the European Parliament and special envoy to Slovakia Jan Marinus Wiersma said fighting corruption, helping the Roma minority, and establishing EU norms in Slovak legislation remained the biggest tasks for the country ahead of its planned 2004 EU entry.

Meanwhile, the European Commission's ambassador to Slovakia, Eric van der Linden, said the country needed to prepare an "exhaustive report" on strategies to fight corruption and help its Roma community ahead of the European Parliament's session in March.
