EU funds in use

DEPUTY Prime Minister for EU integration Pál Csáky informed President Rudolf Schuster on March 2 that the country has drawn 93 percent of its eligible funds from the EU's PHARE programme.

From the SAPARD programme, 80 percent has been drawn and more than 100 percent from the ISPA fund, as belated payments were also drawn last year.

Csáky also informed the president that the Slovak parliament must approve 17 laws related to the use of EU money. The president said he was pleased with the progress that has been reached in the area of EU funds.
