The 10 EU candidate countries, including Slovakia, may share 450 million euro more than was agreed in Copenhagen last December during their first two years of membership, according to the European commissioner responsible for budgeting, Michaele Schreyer.
"I have submitted a proposal and it must be passed by the council and parliament," she said in Bratislava yesterday, after meeting with President Rudolf Schuster and Finance Minister Ivan Mikloš.
She added that Slovakia should receive 1.5 billion euro from European structural funds and additional money for the decommissioning of the Bohunice nuclear power plant and agricultural subsidies.
