The Ministries of Culture and Defence will follow new regulations when providing subsidies as of January 1, 2011 as President Ivan Gašparovič signed into law on November 11 a bill enacting new rules for providing subsidies in these fields which parliament had passed at its October session, the SITA newswire reported.

Transparency of subsidies at both ministries will be secured by three-member independent commissions which will assess applications for subsidies, said Sona Zanová of the President's Office.

The president also signed into law a bill on housing development subsidies and social housing which regulates the terms of providing subsidies for housing development undertaken by the Ministry of Construction.

The head of state also signed a revision to the law on railways which secures adoption of European directives from October and November of last year. Slovakia has thus adopted common European safety indicators and calculation of costs in the event of accidents.
