Euro Valley cornerstone laid

The cornerstone of the Euro Valley high-tech industrial park near west Slovakia’s Malacký town has been laid. The park will sprawl over 1,300 hectares and within 15 years is expected to employ 15,000 people.

“This unique zone through attracting foreign investment has enormous potential to help speed the social and economic development of the region,” said Malacký district office head Dušan Prokop.

Total foreign investments expected into the massive park are Sk79.4 billion ($1.8 billion), largely from software, telecom and R & D firms.
