EEA, Norway aid Slovak regions

A FINANCIAL aid package worth €70 million (Sk2.8 billion) from the European Economic Area (EEA) and Norway has been earmarked to help regional economic imbalance in Slovakia.

The support will be mainly targeted at the sustainable development, environmental, cultural and social affairs sectors.

More information on applying for funding will be available from special seminars in the regions organized by the Slovak government and the Norwegian embassy, the TASR news agency reported.

Slovak government representative Ladislav Setnický said that the aid would be a supplement to existing structural funds, so those that have already received financial help from this area will not be eligible for further funding.
