PRIME Minister Robert Fico predicted on September 4 that Slovakia will reach, or nearly reach, the economic development of the original 15 members of the European Union by 2030.He made the statement during a presentation on the country’s long-term development. He said the vision requires achieving and maintaining effective full employment by 2015.

He believes that rapid growth to such an extent will only be possible if the gross domestic product continues expanding at the current rate using foreign investment and the benefits of a knowledge-based economy.

Fico noted that the development plan was the work of more than 100 experts from the general public, not government officials.

He emphasised that Slovakia must form medium- and long-term plans regardless of what government it will have.

The Cabinet Office has published the plan on its website for comment.
