SLOVAKIA'S early entry into the eurozone will help attract more foreign investment to the country than to other candidate states who accept the EU currency later, central bank's governor, Marián Jusko, said.
According to Jusko, Slovakia still has problems in two out of the five Maastricht criteria - the maximum fiscal deficit and price stability.
Jusko believes, however, that the first formal steps towards the country's entry into the eurozone could start between 2008 and 2010.
