Prime Minister Fico and Prime Minister Mirek Topolánek have agreed on how to proceed on the construction of a new nuclear energy plant at Jaslovské Bohunice (Trnava region). The fact that the Slovak government has chosen Czech state-owned energy company ČEZ as the strategic investor was announced on Wednesday by Slovakia's Economy Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek. The value of the investment is estimated at €4-6 billion (Sk132.78-199.16 billion). However, the definitive price will be revealed following a feasibility study, which should be completed in 2010.
