Slovak speaker of parliament meets Portuguese business leaders

Speaker of Parliament Pavol Paška, who is on an official three-day visit to Portugal, believes he will manage to overcome the distrust of Portuguese businesses towards investment in Eastern Europe, he said.

"Capital knows no boundaries," Paška said at a press conference, after meeting representatives of the Portuguese Industrial Association in Lisbon. "We tried to persuade Portuguese investors to come and start their investment activities chiefly in those Slovak regions where there is still enough of a labour force and room for investments of various types.”

The Portuguese businesses were also interested in conditions for doing business in Slovakia, state aid and investment incentives.
