PPP projects proceed in line with plans

The Transport, Posts and Telecommunications Ministry is proceeding with PPP (public-private partnership) projects on schedule and the opposition can monitor the process, said Minister Ľubomír Vážny on February 18 in response to calls from the opposition to make the PPP projects transparent, the TASR newswire wrote.

The Transport, Posts and Telecommunications Ministry is proceeding with PPP (public-private partnership) projects on schedule and the opposition can monitor the process, said Minister Ľubomír Vážny on February 18 in response to calls from the opposition to make the PPP projects transparent, the TASR newswire wrote.

"I haven't received any request that would say the opposition wants to take part in this process. They all have that option, for example through the MPs' survey, to monitor the whole operation. If they ask for information on individual proceedings, they will obtain it," said Vážny at a briefing in Bratislava, adding that he would welcome a creative discussion. "There is more sense in questions I get from the media than from the opposition.”

Two previous governments, according to Vážny, didn't manage to provide sufficient project planning. "We found a gap, and now we have to make up for lost time. If they hadn't left Slovakia's infrastructure in such bad shape, we wouldn't have to fix it so quickly now," added Vazny.

He said that PPP projects offer certain benefits, one of which is the faster launching of new infrastructure. TASR
