Bratislava might produce Polo

THE GERMAN car giant Volkswagen will extend the production of its popular Polo brand, and Bratislava is in the running to make the cars.

The head of Volkswagen's board of directors, Thomas Schmall, said that the VW Bratislava facility had a great chance of gaining the contract due to the high flexibility of its employees.

However, the SME daily wrote that the eventual Polo production would not lead to the creation of new jobs, since Volkswagen has already hired about 500-800 new people for its extended production of the Audi Q7.

The Handelsblatt German daily wrote that Volkswagen was seeking a new place for production not only because of increasing demand but also because it wants to close down its Polo factory in Spain.
