Plan for effective drawing of Eurofunds to minimise impacts of crisis

The Construction and Regional Development Ministry will prepare an analysis of the drawing of financial sources in all operational programs (OP) in the program period 2007-2013, including a plan for effective drawing of the Euro-funds, ministry spokesman Ján Palffy said on November 13.

Palffy was responding to the 27 measures approved by the government for various ministries on November 6 designed to tackle the impact of the global financial crisis. One of them deals with drawing Eurofunds in such a way as to meet the original budgetary level.

According to a government resolution on August 27, the ministry submits a semi-annual report on implementation and drawing of the structural funds (SF) arranged for Slovakia, Palffy said.

The ministry will, through assessing reports, monitor the development of drawing the Eurofunds and, if necessary, propose specific measures and improvements for using the structural funds, he added. TASR
