No retail chains law yet

DESPITE statements by the Economy Minister Pavol Rusko that he would submit a new retail chains law amendment, required by the EU, for cabinet discussion this week, it is far from ready.

The economic daily Hospodárske noviny wrote that, according the itinerary of legal norms that Slovakia must approve in relation to its EU entry in May this year, the amendment could be submitted to cabinet as late as June.

Representatives of the European Commission said last week that speedy progress was expected with the retail chains law but assured that the commission would not start proceedings against Slovakia if the law were not approved by May.
