      VISA WAIVER ROUNDTABLE IN PITTSBURGH

      When President Bush visited Slovakia in February, one of the
      questions asked him by the Slovaks was the possible waiver of visas
      for Slovaks visiting the United States. This is a frequent problem
      for Americans who want to bring their relatives from Slovakia for a
      visit.


      SATURDAY, SEPT. 10, at 1:30 PM

      Room 1501, Posvar Hall, UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH


      Slovak Honorary Consul, Joseph Senko, has arranged for a roundtable
      in Pittsburgh to discuss the subject of visa waivers for Slovaks. The
      roundtable will consist of the following panelists:

      ----- A U.S. Congressman who will explain the present law regarding
      visas and the criteria necessary for changing the law.

      ----- Pavol Hrusovsky, Chairman of Slovak Parliament, who will
      express Bratislava's views.

      ----- Rastislav Kacer, Slovak Ambassador to the United States, who
      has been confronted with the problem by people from both Slovakia and
      the United States.

      ----- John Goodish, executive vice president of U.S. Steel and former
      president of U.S. Steel-Kosice, which brings workers from Kosice to
      their U.S. plants. Goodish spent four years in Slovakia and also
      understands the issue from both sides.

      Each of the panelists will speak on the subject followed by questions
      from the media. The audience also will be invited to participate.

      The public is invited to this free event. Slovak Americans are
      especially urged to attend.

      Information: (412) 531-2990.

        Martin,
        let's hope for success at this roundtable meeting. thanks for the info. it
        is time that this happens for Poland and Slovakia. i know that the percentage
        of people who remain illegally after the visa expires is a big issue. the
        percentage, unfortunately, for Poland was a few years ago, a few points higher
        than allowable. i wonder what it is for Slovakia.
        any progress in this area for either country is most welcome.
        Noreen
