The next set of government measures is likely to concern health care, transport and public procurement processes, Prime Minister Robert Fico said on Thursday, July 12.
"I have a meeting with the health minister [Zuzana Zvolenská] later today and we will look for agreement on the timetable for submitting proposals to the government concerning the creation of a single public health-insurance company," Fico said, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
Another government plan is to prepare a timetable for construction of primary transport infrastructure. "I expect the transport minister [Ján Počiatek] to table a specific plan shortly on how we'll build highways and dual carriageways," said Fico.
He added that both projects are intended to boost economic growth.
The process of public procurement is to undergo changes, too, he said, adding that the drafting of the changes will involve the new Council for Solidarity and Development. Fico, however, refused to go into detail, saying specific consultations have to be held with stakeholders.
