Businessmen fear collapse after EU entry

SMALL and medium sized businesses (SMEs) are afraid of collapse following Slovakia's EU entry in May 2004.

Ľuboš Lopatka, head of the packaging firm Kappa, Obaly Štúrovo, who is also a president of the Association of Industrial Ecology in Slovakia (ASPEK), said at a press conference on October 14 that the fulfilment of EU's environmental norms will be very costly, and many small firms will collapse because they will lack the money to put their operations in line with the EU guidelines.
