Ministries tasked with drafting EU Recovery Plan reforms

Ministries tasked with drafting EU Recovery Plan reforms

As part of the Government approach to the implementation of the EU Recovery Plan in Slovakia, ministries are to draft individual reforms first and these will be subsequently submitted for public debate. Prime Minister Igor Matovič (OĽaNO) announced this after a session of the Government on Wednesday. Matovič conceded that under the original plan it was to be the other way around: public discussions were supposed to be held first and their conclusions processed and "tweaked" by the ministries. This approach has been abandoned, however. According to the Slovak premier, a "reform summer" is already taking shape, as the ministries are busy drafting the plans. The EU Recovery Fund will allocate €7.5 billion for Slovakia to use. In order to draw the resources, however, each EU member must draft and submit to the European Commission its preliminary national recovery and resiliency plan by October 15 and definitive draft by April 30, 2021.
