Slovakia to help fund UNIDO projects

ON SEPTEMBER 23 Slovak Foreign Affairs Minister Eduard Kukan signed a deal on behalf of the Slovak cabinet and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) pledging to contribute $350,000 (€279,000) for UNIDO projects in developing countries, the TASR news agency wrote.

The so-called Administrative Agreement, said Kukan, is a legal basis for further cooperation with UNIDO. It will require setting up a programme committee including Slovak experts who will evaluate development aid projects.
