Forbes calls Slovakia investors' paradise

IN THE latest edition of Forbes magazine, founder and billionaire media magnate Steve Forbes calls Slovakia a paradise for investors.

Forbes, who recently visited the country, assumes that Slovakia might soon follow the model of Ireland or Hong Kong and turn into a regional economic power.

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