Slovak shares continue to rise

The Slovak SAX share index has risen from 70 to 160 points between March 2000 and March 2003, despite the difficulties in other countries' indexes.

The stock market has been buoyed up by companies such as Slovnaft, Slovakofarma, Nafta, and VÚB that have attracted foreign investors, according to stockbroker Roman Guderna.
