Slovaks migrate to towns

SLOVAKS are migrating to urban centres to avoid the lower living standards in villages, experts say.

"Efforts to improve living standards are the root causes of the migration, but also attempts to avoid falling into complete poverty. That is true mainly in eastern Slovakia," said sociologist Michal Vašečka.

Labour Minister Ľudovít Kaník said he believes the trend will change as people move back to the villages to work in farming or tourism.
