Reader feedback: Kudos for winning car contract

Re: Slovakia beats out Poland to win Peugeot plant, By Dewey Smolka Vol 9, No 2, Jan 20 to 26

Congratulations for having been chosen by PSA Peugeot-Citroen for this great automotive investment project.

This is really good news and this investment will boost the Slovak economy and will create even more direct and indirect jobs in the future.

During my last stay in Slovakia a few weeks ago, I noticed that French cars are quite popular in Slovakia, (after Škoda and Volkswagen of course), and we might even see more Peugeot or Citroens on Slovak roads in the future.
