THE SLOVAK Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO) will spend Sk6.6 million (€157,000) to get information on and ensure consulting services for the projects involved in the renewal of Iraq, news wire TASR reported.

SARIO, at the beginning of June 2003, signed deals with consulting company Tucker & Associates and the law firm White & Case. The legal-consulting services provided to SARIO and nominated Slovak companies will cost Sk2.4 million (€57,000).

SARIO will pay Tucker & Associates to acquire information about contracts for reconstruction projects in Iraq for Slovak companies valued at almost Sk4.2 million (€100,000).
