Transport Minister Ján Počiatek on Wednesday, February 27, met US Ambassador to Slovakia Theodore Sedgwick to discuss the construction of highways and the future of U.S. Steel in Košice, among other issues, the TASR newswire reported, citing ministry spokesman Martin Kóňa.

Počiatek informed the ambassador about plans to launch construction of 310 kilometres of highways and other multi-lane roads within the current electoral term; more than 130 kilometres of these are supposed to have been opened before the current government’s term expires in 2016.

When talk turned to U.S. Steel Košice, Sedgwick praised the "attention paid by members of the government to the agenda". Počiatek said that the steelworks are a key customer of the state-run rail company Cargo, and the government would do everything possible to keep the American company in Slovakia. The firm announced late last year that it was planning to sell its works in Košice, which is the biggest employer in eastern Slovakia.
