Bush expected to submit terms for visa change

JAKE SLEGERS, executive director of the American Chamber of Commerce in Slovakia, expects that President George Bush will submit terms for the introduction of a visa-free regime between Slovakia and the Unites States during his visit this week, the SITA news agency reported.

"The process will last for a number of years. But the visit of George Bush in Bratislava will contribute to the development of Slovak-American relations and commercial cooperation," Slegers said.

According to representatives of the American chambers of commerce in Europe, relations between the European Union and the United States are more intensive than ever before.
