Toyota and Mazda deny investment plans in Slovakia

JAPANESE carmakers Toyota and Mazda denied information alleging that they planned investments in Slovakia, presented recently by Ján Bajánek, head of the Slovak Agency for the Development of Trade and Investment.

Bajánek told Reuters last week that Toyota had "more or less decided" to come to Slovakia and that the talks with Mazda had "progressed".

He told the daily SME that his statement regarding Mazda had not been presented precisely: "I just said that a communication channel had been opened."
