Commission extends the Slovenian bank liquidity support scheme On 24 August 2010 the Commission has extended the Slovenian liquidity scheme for the financial sector until 31 December 2010. The Commission considers the extension of the measures to be in line with its guidance on state aid to banks during the financial crisis. The extended scheme features higher premiums to be paid by the banks for the loans granted by the state in order to provide an incentive for banks to refinance themselves on the markets without state support and to limit distortions of competition.
