Unis and Zekon get Iraqi contracts

TWO SLOVAK firms have received contracts in the reconstruction of Iraq, the state-run news agency TASR wrote on January 27, referring to a cabinet document.

The Trnava-based Unis Slovensko received a €56 million deal to supply a Basra refinery with equipment that will increase its oil extraction capacities. The textile firm Zekon, from the eastern Slovak town of Michalovce, will supply military materials to the country via an order from Great Britain.

The Slovak Trade and Investment Development Agency (SARIO) has a complete list of local firms that are interested in Iraqi contracts. SARIO head Ján Bajánek said to TASR that the list included more than 50 firms from areas such as machinery, energy, and health care.
