Meanwhile, Mondi is planning to ask the Slovak Government for investment aid. It is being estimated that tihs may reach as much as €40 million. Such a significant investment impetus must be approved by Brussels first, however, the daily writes.

The Government may debate the issue as early as next week, just ahead of the general election, concludes the daily.
