Sario: We’re doing better than expected

The head of the Sario investment agency said the body had attracted 30 foreign investors in its first year of existence, creating almost 6,500 jobs and drawing 335 million euros to the country, and that investors were “only now beginning to discover Slovakia”.

Sario boss Artur Bobovnický said he had expected to draw only 14 investments creating 2,500 jobs.

In the same period (from January to October 2002), the Czechinvest agency drew 120 investment projects, four times more than Sario, creating almost 8,300 jobs and worth over $658 million.
