The final regular session of the Slovak government before the summer break took place on Wednesday, July 10. The next session is planned for August 14, the TASR newswire wrote.

Today’s session will be led by one of the deputy prime ministers, as Prime Minister Robert Fico will be absent, given that he has left with Defence Minister Martin Glváč and a team of investigators for Afghanistan due to the July 9 tragedy wherein a member of the Afghan nation army shot and killed a Slovak soldier and wounded six others.

The 67th government session’s agenda includes selecting a strategic partner for the army maintenance and repair companies Vojenský opravárenský
podnik (Military Repair Company) Trenčín and Letecké opravovne (Aeronautic Repairs) Trenčín, an amendment to the law on R&D stimuli, an amendment to the law on administrative fees, a new method of payment at state offices via bank cards instead of fee stamps, in addition to other measures, mostly tabled by Finance Minister Peter Kažimír.

Audit bodies shall have easier access to accounting data of companies as of next year, as well as to cash registers. According to one of the proposals, the state should financially support facilities operating in tourism, specifically those that manage to attract foreign travellers for five days or more. The cabinet is also to deal with the National Report of the Slovak Republic elaborated by the Office for Nuclear Supervision (ÚJD), which found that the operation of all nuclear facilities in Slovakia has been safe and reliable in the last three years.
