Chance for Slovak firms in Iraq reconstruction

Iraq's reconstruction will open opportunities for Slovak firms to export electro-technical, health care, and other goods to depots in Turkey, Ján Bajánek, head of the Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO), said after returning from a conference in Jordan.

Representatives of about 30 states attended the conference.

Bajánek said to the Slovak economic daily Hospodárske noviny on January 15 that Slovakia also has the chance to participate in the reconstruction of several bridges in Baghdad, and that one energy distribution firm from Slovakia, in a joint bid with US firms, should participate in a tender for the reconstruction of electro-energy facilities that would include construction works.

"It is now up to Slovak firms who we want to meet and talk about these plans to contact the primary contractors in Washington," Bajánek said.
