Slovakia and the EU
The decision of the Helsinki summit to open negotiations with the SK and other candidate countries had a far-reaching and truly historic impact on the development of individual applicants for membership and the entire continent. It was an important step in the chain of events that shaped Europe in the last decade - it was another significant contribution towards building a continent on the basis of security, stability and prosperity. Slovakia was given the chance to embark on the decisive stage of its road to becoming a member of the community of countries with whom the country shares history, civilisation and values. The European integration process is based primarily on the idea of co-existence of countries and nations which share and implement common values and principles of their political, economic and social life. European integration is a complex process which involves a number of mutually inderlinked elements such as membership of NATO, the EU, The OECD. In SVK, the further deepening of co-operation within the Visegrad grouping is greatly significant. The objectives of the V-4 countries which include close mutual co-operation, strengthening the cohesion of the Central European regionand support for Euro-Atlantic integration have already become a firm pillar of the European stability and contribute to the successful development of the entire continent.
The consequences of membership to the EU:
1.advantage - opening the job market, allowing people to escape unemployment or low wages
2.the participation in European projects by pupils, teachers, students
3.funds of money to improve the infrastructure of the country
