EC: Slovakia must fight corruption

SLOVAKIA has to pay more attention to developing the administrative capacity to absorb European structural funds after Slovakia's EU entry, general secretary of the European Commission (EC) David O'Sullivan said on March 28 in Bratislava.

According to O'Sullivan, the EC expects Slovakia to make progress in the fight against corruption and discrimination. He also stressed the long-term importance of the information campaign on EU membership, which is not set to continue after the EU referendum set for May 16-17.

He met cabinet ministers, MPs, and representatives of the third sector during his visit to Slovakia.
