Euro adoption will require Sk20.4 million (€663,900) from next year's state budget, an Interior Ministry press release reads on July 30.

This money should be used to secure the annual salaries of police officers dispatched on an assignment or study abroad, as well as the extra expenses arising from conversion of crowns into euros in the calculation of salaries.
The proposal is now circulating for comment from other ministries.

The ministry also requests Sk1.4 million to cover health insurance, social security and retirement savings for public officials and expects the same cost to be incurred in the ensuing 2010-12 period (but adjusted for inflation). TASR
