SLOVAKIA’s trade and investment agency, SARIO, is in the final stage of talks with foreign companies that are preparing 36 investment projects worth €2 billion. The agency has already selected 17 projects with investments worth almost €1.3 billion for talks on state assistance, SARIO head Roman Kuruc said.

The 17 projects would create between 6,000 and 8,000 jobs in Slovakia, the SME daily wrote. The decision on the remaining projects should be made by the end of this year.

Among the main potential investors are firms from Germany, South Korea, the US, and the United Kingdom.
