A dozen industrial parks planned for 2005

AS MANY as 12 industrial parks should be built in 2005, Economy Minister Pavol Rusko said October 13.

According to the minister, most of the parks will be financed from EU funds though some may receive state funding.

Rusko thinks that 2005 will be "the year of industrial park development", according to the SITA news agency. Investors are expected in the regions of Prešov, Banská Bystrica, Košice, and Nitra next year, though Rusko would not reveal any details.
