Letter of the editor

Dear Readers,

SINCE no government can shape effective economic policies without hearing the views of the business and professional community, The Slovak Spectator will be running a new series over the next few months called Setting the Agenda, which will provide space to key players to comment on policies and legislation in their sectors.

The series, similarly to our Investment Leaders articles, will feature a Q&A called Industry Voices with prominent CEOs from Slovak industry, business and the foreign investment community.

The Q&As are designed to give an overview of the development and challenges of each sector and to highlight the areas that deserve more attention from the government.

Our readers know that we treat advertising as something strictly separate from editorial content, and this is how we will proceed in the future.

As in the case of the Investment Leaders series, some parts of the Industry Voices series will be supported through advertising.

Then, as now, the editorial content will adhere to professional journalistic standards.

Advertisers who happen to be the subjects of our interviews do not pre-approve questions or censor content.

Beata Balogová,
