Defence Ministry job cuts will save millions

AS a result of a personnel audit at Slovakia's Defence Ministry, 210 positions within the department will be cancelled, the Hospodárske noviny business daily wrote.

"For many people the overall change will mean the end of socialist and the start of capitalist and transparent rules," said Defence Minister Juraj Liška at a press conference held June 22.

The ministry should save around Sk90 million (€2.3 million) per year as a result of the streamlining. The ministry's six sections will be cut to four and 2,200 people will work here.

The new system should eliminate overlapping between the activities of the ministry and the army's General Staff, related processes will be merged, and new economic rules will be introduced.
