BRATISLAVA – Countries in Central and Eastern Europe like Slovakia, which were part of the Soviet bloc, have an opportunity to leap into modern technologies and renewables and not get stuck in stranded investments into gas, a Slovak Member of the European Parliament, Martin Hojsik, told New Europe in an interview at the sidelines of the GLOBSEC forum on June 16.

“What we see now is often the arguments coming from some Central and East European countries about, ‘Yes, we know we need to deal with climate but we are special, it’s very hard for us, we are highly industrialized so we have to be taken benevolently, so don’t push us too much,” said Hojsik, who is also a member of the ENVI Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety.
