The opposition SDKÚ-DS party received a vote of support from the Slovak Bank Association (SBA) on November 19 for its package of measures designed to counteract the effects of the global economic crisis. The proposals are aimed at improving the business environment, new impetuses for start-ups, and more effective functioning of public administration.
"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
