Slovakia to get Sk60 billion a year from EU in 2007-2013

SLOVAKIA will acquire at least Sk60 billion (€1.577 billion) a year from EU funds in 2007 to 2013, according to Vice-Premier Pál Csáky, the TASR news agency reported.

"Also, a proposal of the EU Financial outlook for 2007 to 2013 counts on this sum, and Slovakia is trying to get an even higher amount," Csáky said at a press conference following the session of the Ministerial Council for European Union Affairs, members of the Parliamentary Committee for European Affairs and European Parliament Members (MEPs).

Slovakia's priorities, for which the country wants to use the funds, will be fixed as late as December, according to Csáky. "It appears that our economy's competitiveness is already becoming a priority. Support of the regions lagging behind is a priority as well as finishing infrastructure developments, science, research and education," Csáky added.
