State to explain EU Constitution

SLOVAKIA will receive over Sk2.3 million (€60,200) from the European Union (EU) to promote understanding of the EU Constitutional Treaty, which it will ratify in May 2005, the SITA news agency wrote.

In March this year Slovakia will host an international conference on the EU Constitution. Deputy Prime Minister Pál Csáky wants to invite foreign Euro-sceptics to the conference for the discussion.

In March Slovaks will receive information packs on the EU Constitution by regular mail. The material will explain the document and how it affects Slovakia.

Parliament will also allocate resources for explaining the EU to Slovaks.

According to Csáky, the issues explained will include the EU Constitution, EU funding and joining the European Monetary Union as the basic requirement for a country to adopt the euro.
