DEAR READERS AND SUBSCRIBERS,

Letter from the publisher

The coming year is full of expectations due to EU accession. The economic reforms, such as the flat tax rate, about which you have read and commented in the past months, will not be without effect on our paper. We have always tried to provide you with the best value and in the past have not reflected all cost increases in the price of our paper.

The coming year is full of expectations due to EU accession. The economic reforms, such as the flat tax rate, about which you have read and commented in the past months, will not be without effect on our paper. We have always tried to provide you with the best value and in the past have not reflected all cost increases in the price of our paper. However, in 2004 we have no choice but to adapt our prices to higher postage fees, the VAT increase to 19 percent, and greater energy costs. Consider this change another step in the country's transformation.


In anticipation of this price change, we would like to guarantee our loyal subscribers the chance to continue receiving The Slovak Spectator for the old, 2003 price. This offer is valid until January 31, 2004. (see the order form on page 14)


As a subscriber you receive all the other publications published by our company for free. These are the Career and Employment Guide, Real Estate and Construction Guide, Spectacular Slovakia travel guide, Investment Guide, and Book of Lists. These publications are sent with the newspapers, as they are published throughout the year.


Those who participated in the readership survey will begin to receive their subscription next week. We believe you will enjoy reading your own, personal copy of the newspaper.
