Government Passes Measures for Economic Reconstruction
Ljubljana, 5 August - During a session today, the Government passed a packet of short-term measures, which will be placed before the Assembly for debate. This packet rounds off the preparatory phase of economic reform and reconstruction, said Minister of Finance Mitja Gaspari at a press conference held today shortly after the session.
The measures include placing the bill on the state purchase of company's outstanding claims against Iraq and the former Federal Traffic Administration before the Assembly.
