CEOs welcome stricter checks on local funds

The majority of top managers in Slovak companies and institutions welcome parliament's decision to authorize the Supreme Audit Office (NKÚ) to control local governments' handling of public finances, an opinion poll carried out by the Trend weekly in business circles shows.

As many as 87.6 percent of respondents answered the question "Will the NKÚ powers to control the economic performance of local governments be beneficial for citizens?" with "certainly yes" or "rather yes".

Of the 129 managers who took part in the poll, more than half agreed with parliament's decision. Only seven percent of those polled responded "Rather no" to the new powers for the NKÚ and only one respondent definitely opposed the new measures.
