Cabinet agrees to treat Chamber of Commerce as a public institution

At its regular meeting on June 18, the cabinet agreed a draft amendment to the law on chambers of commerce and industry, submitted by deputies Maroš Kondrót (Smer), Ján Chrbet (SNS) and Milan Urbáni (HZDS). The draft would define the Slovak Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SOPK) as a public institution, allowing it to use state-owned assets for its operation. "SOPK’s tasks, stemming from entry into the European Union (EU) and from the adopted national legislation, require specifying SOPK's position as a public institution and an important representative of the business community," say the amendment's submitters. "We do not doubt the goal followed by these provisions, however, we point out that neither the explanatory report, nor the clause on influences says which administrator should transfer control over which immovable assets free-of-charge to the chamber, or what immovable assets and to what extent," read the opinion of the Economy Ministry to the draft.
