SLOVAKIA has great expectations for the Danube Strategy which, with the help of the European Union, is designed to support the comprehensive and sustainable development of the broad Danube region. The SITA newswire reported that the Slovak cabinet approved the country’s assent to this strategy on March 3.

After adoption of the Lisbon Treaty, this strategy could be the first large-scale European project which will enable uniform and united action on the needs and priorities of the states, regions, and communities touched by the Danube – which the EU sees as beneficial for the whole of Europe. The cabinet said Slovakia agrees with the main pillars of the Danube Strategy as proposed by European Commission: transport and connectivity; water resource development; and social and economic development.

Within the broader Danube Strategy, Slovakia’s priority will be in the development of transport infrastructure connected with the river.
