Banská Bystrica more attractive than ever

FOR THE NEEDS of foreign investors, the labour force in Bratislava, the Slovak capital, is already occupied. Foreign firms are more and now hesitant to place their investments there, according to a study by consulting firms Capgemini Consulting and Jenewein & Partner, wrote the Hosodárske noviny daily.

Banská Bystrica in central Slovakia now has the greatest potential for investment attention.

Milan Vajda, spokesman of the Bratislava mayor, however, argued that the external study was biased. He added that the influx of foreign direct investments to Bratislava was strong and that labour supply still exceeds demand.
