Slovakia to gain a billion euro from EU funds

Slovakia is set to receive more than 1 billion euro in funding from the EU, which is more than it will pay between 2004 and 2006, according to the Finance Ministry.

The final figures will depend on the quality of bids for development projects prepared on the Slovak side. Finance Minister Ivan Mikloš cites this as a reason why wages will rise for experts in the ministries of construction and regional development, agriculture, and transport.
