NEGOTIATIONS are currently taking place with around 30 investors that may wish to develop their businesses in Slovakia, the Slovak Agency for the Development of Investments and Trade (SARIO) reported.
Whether they will invest in Slovakia in the end is still unclear, however, because "the basic question of the current talks is whether they will come to Slovakia at all," SARIO spokesman Michal Nvota told the Hospodárske noviny daily.
He would not reveal any further details on the given projects. It is suspected, though, that the majority of these projects are potential investments into production rather than research and development.
Slovakia is especially attractive for investors active in sectors linked to the automotive industry, thanks to the new PSA Citroen Peugeot and Kia Motors plants in Trnava and Žilina, respectively.
