Forbes calls Slovakia investors' paradise

In the latest edition of Forbes magazine, its founder Steve Forbes calls Slovakia a paradise for investors.

Forbes, who recently visited the country assumes that the Slovak Republic might soon become the future Ireland or Hong Kong turning into an economic power.

He lists tax reforms, a flexible labour code and excess of educated and cheap labour as main reasons for the investors to come to Slovakia. He also dubs the country as a friend of the United States.
