The Czech Republic is considering drawing on funds from the European Investment Bank (EIB) to help develop its transport infrastructure.
Deputy minister Tomáš Čoček said a loan of around 100 million crowns could be sought which would be divided between road and rail projects.
He said the loan could replace a shortfall in state funds and be possibly cheaper than using state bonds to finance such development.
