"The SBA expressed its support for the Protection Plan, and especially for measures stimulating business and growth," a representative of the SDKÚ-DS said.

Meanwhile, both SBA and SDKÚ-DS agreed on the need for further consultations focusing on the fine-tuning the Protection Plan for Slovak citizens. The SBA is the sixth organisation, with which SDKÚ-DS discussed support for the proposed measures. The party has worked out a protection plan for growth and for the support of development, new activities, and the stability of the middle class. SDKÚ-DS has confirmed that it will discuss its proposals with every organisation that is interested in the respective measures. TASR
