THE SLOVAK Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO) mediated eight investment projects in the first quarter of this year. These projects will provide €22.4 million (Sk840 million) in direct foreign investments in the coming period, said SARIO Director Milan Juráška at a press conference on April 19.
The investors should create 2,085 new jobs. They come from France, Germany, Finland and Great Britain. Individual projects are at various phases of development, the SITA news agency reported.
Two investors from Germany should invest the largest amounts, with their projects in Rimavská Sobota and Košice reaching €17.7 million. French investors should set up factories in Liptovský Mikuláš and Zlaté Moravce, while the British plan to invest in Dubnica nad Váhom and Bratislava, and the Finnish investment should land in Bratislava and Kráľová nad Váhom.
The new projects involve the automotive, metal processing, engineering and chemical industries, services and IT sectors.
