Linden: Slovakia is the Tatra tiger

SLOVAKIA's progress in preparation for the drawing of EU funds has put the country among the best-prepared acceding states in the area, officials said.

State officials including deputy PM for integration Pál Csáky, EC ambassador to Slovakia Eric van der Linden, and Regional Development Minister László Gyurovsky agreed that Slovakia was the second acceding state after Hungary to ask its people to submit project proposals in request of EU funding.

The Slovak economic daily Hospodárske noviny wrote on January 26 that, according to van der Linden, the country's recent progress in growth and development could soon turn Slovakia into the tiger from the Tatras; an economic predator of the new Europe.

In the course of the next three years, as much as €1.7 billion in EU funds will be available to Slovakia.
