Minister Miklos at U. S. Steel Kosice

On Thursday of last week, October 21st, U. S. Steel Kosice was visited by SR Minister for the Environment Laszlo Miklos. This government representative, accompanied by staff of the specialized state service for environmental issues, was welcomed on Company premises on behalf of President Christopher Navetta by Vice-president Technology Michael Fedorenko.
The idea of a joint meeting at the steelworks arose in February of this year, when U. S. Steel Kosice representatives went to the SR Environment Ministry in Bratislava to present the projects which the Company is planning to implement in the environmental protection field in the very near future. Eight months later Minister Miklos came to find out for himself how the steelworks is getting on in realizing its aims and objectives.

These were found to be much more impressive than the forecast plan.
"I'd like to thank you for these outstanding results, this contribution made by all of you, team leaders and U. S. Steel Kosice employees alike," said the President.
