The Government will draft a bill to cut road tax in such a way so as to bolster the competitiveness of Slovak road carriers within the region, Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini (Smer-SD) stated after meeting with striking representatives of the Slovak Hauliers' Union (UNAS) and Road Hauliers Association CESMAD Slovakia on Monday. The Cabinet would like to approve the new legislation ahead of the February parliamentary elections. Three variants of a revised road tax are to be drafted and the most suitable one is to be picked in collaboration with the road hauliers. If passed, the new legislation is projected to come into effect in 2020.
