Slovak musical diva enchants Koreans THE CULTURAL exchange between Slovakia and the Republic of Korea works both ways.

Seeing the shared traits SLOVAKIA remains attractive to foreign investors thanks to its strategic geographic location, political and economic stability, and high labour productivity. However, in the context of the competition presented by the neighbouring countries, there is room for improvement, “especially in such areas as reducing the tax burden, infrastructure development and efficiency of law enforcement,” said Sang-hoon Park, the ambassador of the Republic of Korea, in an interview with The Slovak Spectator. 11 Aug 2014 The Slovak Spectator
Existing investments draw new ones THE REPUBLIC of Korea is the most important non-European investor in Slovakia, which has had the effect of boosting mutual trade. But since Korean companies prefer their own sub-contractors, new Korean investments tend to be attracted to already existing ones. Earlier this year, the arrival of new investors, plus the expansion of some existing ones, were announced. 11 Aug 2014 The Slovak Spectator

Turning challenges into benefits WHEN preparing for his diplomatic mission to Slovakia while still in Tokyo, Akio Egawa came across the name of Major Theodor Edler von Lerch, the Austro-Hungarian soldier who brought skiing to Japan. “I think in Slovakia not many people know this name, but in Japan, Edler von Lerch, born in Bratislava, is considered to be the father of skiing, as he introduced skiing to Japan more than 100 years ago,” said Japanese Ambassador Egawa in an interview with The Slovak Spectator, which covered a number of aspects of Slovak and Japanese links. 11 Aug 2014 The Slovak Spectator
Eyeing Japanese investments Japanese business missions may indicate possible expansion in economic cooperation SLOVAKIA has never been a traditional destination for Japanese investors, some of whom view this small country simply as part of a bigger central-European region. But the Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO) believes that Slovakia can serve as an entry point for Japanese investors into Europe. While the Slovak-Japanese Chamber of Commerce (SJOK) does not register any change in the interest of Japanese investors in Slovakia, SARIO reports growing interest among Japanese companies in investing in Slovakia. 11 Aug 2014 The Slovak Spectator
A growing love of Japanese culture THE YEAR 2013 represented a milestone for Japan and Slovakia, being the 20th anniversary of Slovak-Japanese diplomatic ties. To mark the event and solidify those ties, the Japanese Embassy to Slovakia promoted a range of cultural events in Slovakia, which have spilled over into 2014 for the V4 plus Japan Exchange Year. 11 Aug 2014 The Slovak Spectator
RAF memorial unveiled DESPITE numerous commemorative events and memorials to remember the victims of the Second World War, Slovakia and the Czech Republic have until recently lacked a permanent memorial which would express the thanks of the United Kingdom for their contribution in the war.
