Reader feedback: Publicize Slovakia

Re: More than half of Slovaks unable to judge EU constitution, Flash News, June 21, 2005

I think people in Slovakia should be aware of the great changes the EU brought about in the unemployment rate, the Gross National Product, wage increases and increases in investment. Without the EU, Slovakia would either fall into Russia's hands or would struggle while the countries around it thrived.

A great country is not built in a day: have patience. The government should be giving the people constant public updates [about the benefits of EU membership for Slovakia]; on radio or TV or through the mail, whatever ways it can. Obviously most of the people don't know about the great changes that are occurring.
