Rover is interested in Slovakia

Slovak Economy Minister Pavol Rusko officially confirmed there were two new foreign carmakers interested in investing in Slovakia, news wire TASR reported.

One of them is British car producer Rover, which plans to invest at least €400 million in a new production facility in eastern Slovakia, according to Rusko.

The minister is due to hold talks with Rover representatives after his return from talks with representatives of the South Korean carmaker Hyundai, which made its interest in Slovakia known some time ago.
