Morning News: Wednesday, September 7, 2022

If your day doesn’t start until you’re up to speed on the latest headlines, then let us introduce you to our new morning fix. 


  • Prime Minister Petr Fiala says a national strategy to combat high energy prices is being prepared which will either supplement or replace any European solution. He said on Tuesday that it would depend what agreement was reached at European level.


  • Year-on-year growth in industrial output in Czechia slowed to 0.8 percent in July from 2.7 percent in June, according to official data. Analysts believe this is evidence of an impending economic recession, the Czech News Agency reported.


  • Petr Pavel has officially announced that he will stand in elections to the Czech presidency in January next year. Mr. Pavel is a former Czech Army general and was chairman of the NATO Military Committee for three years.


  • The Czech EU Presidency is ready to start negotiations on the possible extension of temporary protection for Ukrainian refugees, Czech Interior Minister Vít Rakušan said on Monday. The protection mechanism allows Ukrainians fleeing the war to access work, housing or education in all the EU countries. The EU agreed to introduce it annually for the first time in its history in March 2022.


  • Ministers from the Slovak centre-right Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) party resigned on Monday, making good on the party’s threats to leave the government amid clashes with senior ruling partners. The resignations mean the NATO and European Union member country’s centre-right cabinet will lose its parliamentary majority.
