The total output of the automotive industry in Slovakia reached Sk240 billion (€5.89 billion) in 2003, compared to its 2002 results of Sk185 billion (€4.54 billion), news wire SITA wrote.
Originally production from Sk160 billion (€3.93 billion) to Sk200 billion (€4.91 billion) was a target for 2010.
Apart from the growth of final production boosted by a new production programme in Volkswagen Slovakia, the increase of subcontractor deliveries also pumped up the numbers for the industry, the Economy Ministry said in its report.
