SUBJECT: SLOVAKIA: INFORMATION FOR CONGRESSIONAL REPORT ON
EUROPEAN ASSISTANCE TO ANDEAN REGION

REF: STATE 27676

1. The Director of the Department for Official Development
Assistance at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Peter Hulenyi,
reports that the GOS does not currently give any bilateral
contributions to the Andean region. Latin America is not
considered a priority by the GOS, and Hulenyi does not
anticipate that developmental assistance for this region will
be included on the GOS's upcoming agenda.

2. A minor portion (4.6 percent) of GOS contributions to
the EU's general budget are earmarked for developmental
assistance. However, this allotment is utilized for
countries throughout the world, not just the Andean region.
The EU determines which countries will benefit from the
overall budget for assistance.
