Reader feedback: Important case

Re: US Steel sues for quotas, Volume 11, Number 10, March 14 - March 20, 2005

At least we will be able to see whether the laws that our European governments make for Europe apply to everyone or everyone except US companies.

This could be a very important case for European industry. The result will show whether Slovakia really is on the world map or an unwitting servant of major multinationals with a huge profit in mind.

The worst thing that can happen is that polluting companies will not invest in Slovakia - but this will leave an open playing field for others to invest - and there are many more to come.
