Weekly Review of Slovene Economy from August 23 to 29
Ljubljana, 30 August - The main topic of Tuesday's meeting of Croatian and Slovene Economics Ministers Nenad Porges and Metod Dragonja at the Mokrice castle was the regulation on transforming the Krsko nuclear power plant (NEK) to a public enterprise. The regulation, which provoked criticism on the Croatian side, came into force on 1 August; one of the agreements reached at the meeting was that the NEK managing board will not meet until the competent ministries arrange certain issues concerning the regulation on transforming the N-plant to a public enterprise. According to Dragonja, the Slovene side again stressed at the meeting that the passing of the regulation does not mean the dispossession of the Croatian part, and explained the reasons why the regulation was passed. In the second part of the regulation, which refers to provisions regarding the management, the Croatian side demands certain supplements or establishment of balance on the principle of consensus, the Slovene minister told. This issue will be the subject of future adjustment; apart from this, intensive preparation of the interstate agreement on NEK will be ensured, Metod Dragonja said.
