THE SLOVAK government has agreed to borrow Sk900 million (€23.19 million) for the completion of the new Slovak National Theatre (SND) building, which should be completed by the next parliamentary elections in 2006, the Pravda daily wrote.

The Culture Ministry plans to repay the money to the state with the money from the sale of the current SND headquarters and theatre buildings and the land surrounding the new SND complex.
