Slovakia catches rest of V4 in FDI

THE INFLUX of foreign investment to Slovakia is growing and the country's position is improving compared to the other V4 states, according to information published at a recent meeting of cabinet and business representatives from the central and eastern European region in Bucharest.

In 2002, Slovakia even scored the highest FDI, relative to GDP, among V4 countries - 17 percent, Slovak daily SME reported.

The Czech Republic received investments of just below 14 percent of its GDP, Poland was slightly above two percent, and Hungary was at one percent.
