Thirteen investors arrive in Slovakia so far in 2006

THIRTEEN new investors have come to Slovakia this year, but the state investment agency is concealing the total value of their investments.

According to the SARIO national trade and investment development agency, it is impossible “to publish the amount of the planned investments because the information is considered a business secret”, said SARIO spokeswoman Soňa Junasová.

"The new investors should create 4,390 new jobs in the country. Another 4,253 jobs should be created indirectly," Junasová told the SITA news agency.

The largest number of investors is involved in the IT services sector, followed by the automotive and electrical engineering industries.

The biggest investor is Sony, which will build an LCD television factory in the industrial park in Nitra. The company plans to invest almost €73 million and employ 3,000 people, 1,500 of whom will be relocated from Sony's existing factory in Trnava.
