Embraco asks Kukan to remove barriers

Top management of engineering Brazilian company Embraco, one of the biggest investors to eastern Slovakia, has asked Foreign Affairs Minister Eduard Kukan to support an amendment to the law on the temporary residence of foreigners in Slovakia.

Embraco management sees no other legislative obstacles in the company's way. The managers appreciate the quality of Slovak labour and smooth cooperation with local self-governments.

Since its arrival, the company has invested $75 million (€66 million) in Slovakia. Embraco Slovakia is part of Brazilian parent company Embraco headquartered in Joinville.
