Steel agreement close

PÁL Csáky, deputy PM for EU integration, said that an agreement with the EU over the disputed overproduction of steel in the Slovak town of Košice by U.S. Steel could be reached within ten days.

The Slovak daily Hospodárke Noviny reported on November 24 that Csáky had met with U.S. Steel president Christopher Navetta, the two had agreed on a solution to the company's growing steel production, and they had sent the proposal to Brussels. Details of the agreement are not known.

Csáky said he had already received initial and positive feedback on the proposed plan.
