"We don't want to raise taxes and choose the way of laying other burdens on our citizens," Fico said after carrying out an inspection at the Finance Ministry. "The philosophy is not to privatise, not to increase deductions, but just the opposite: to save and create the conditions for strong economic growth. This is our way of building a social state.” TASR
