Fico wants the strongest possible euro conversion rate

Prime Minister Robert Fico stressed that the strongest possible conversion rate for the Slovak crown was the priority of his government now that the European Commission has backed Slovakia's adoption of the euro, the SITA newswire wrote. The prime minister said that if a situation occurs in which the interests of the corporate sector compete with those of the common people, the interests of the latter would matter more for the government. Fico made his comments at a press conference of the European Commission Representation in Slovakia, held after the EC recommended that Slovakia become a member of the eurozone next January.
