Subsequently, banks should sign an agreement on joint action with the state bailout agency Slovenská Konsolidačná by November 6 of the same year. These are the conclusions of talks involving the Finance Ministry, the Slovak Banking Association and Slovenská Konsolidačná. The Cabinet approved the scheme of state assistance to people that will be unable to repay their housing loans as a consequence of the crisis in the middle of July, SITA wrote. SITA
