Construction Ministry has no knowledge of disputes about Eurofunds

The Construction and Regional Development Ministry, the central coordinating body for Eurofunds in Slovakia, on March 12 said it didn't know about competence disputes between the Smer-SD and SNS parties concerning the management of the Eurofunds. Involved is the Sk400 billion (€12.158 billion) that the EU approved for Slovakia for the seven-year (2007-13) period.

The Construction and Regional Development Ministry, the central coordinating body for Eurofunds in Slovakia, on March 12 said it didn't know about competence disputes between the Smer-SD and SNS parties concerning the management of the Eurofunds. Involved is the Sk400 billion (€12.158 billion) that the EU approved for Slovakia for the seven-year (2007-13) period.

Ministry spokesman Miroslav Bátovský reacted to the March 12 news conference given by opposition SDKÚ-DS caucus chairman and MP Stanislav Janiš. According to Bátovský, Construction Minister Marián Janušek (SNS), who is returning from a working trip to Jerusalem on Wednesday, will comment on this issue at a news conference on Thursday, March 13.

Asked by SLOVAKIA how he assesses the registration of those applying for financial contribution from Eurofunds at the Construction Ministry through the internet, Janis cast doubt upon this model. On the other hand, he appreciated that on March 11, Economy Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek launched the Operational Program (OP) Competitiveness and Economic Growth (KaHR). He added that the challenges for the standard submitting of projects are just as they were in 2004-2006. Janiš said that it was the Economy Ministry that was best prepared to drawing Eurofunds. In response, Bátovský said: "Practice will show whether it's true or not". TASR
