Rusko wants to support miners

A long-term vision and a decision on how much coal Slovak power plants should buy every year are priorities for the power industry in Slovakia, according to Economy Minister Pavol Rusko.

The minister believes the state budget for 2005 and 2006 should allocate Sk100 million (€2.5 million) to the miners. He further believes, however, that more solutions are needed to solve the financial problems of the non-profit making mines, the Hospordárske Noviny daily reports.
