Rusko suggests new Kia site

ECONOMY Minister Pavol Rusko said that if the purchase of land for the new Kia car plant near Žilina became more complicated the ministry would consider offering a new site to the South Korean investor.

The SME daily wrote that the ministry was working on an alternative site near the western Slovak city of Nitra.

Some of the landowners near Žilina have refused to sell their land for the offered price, which ranges between Sk110 (€2.75) and Sk140 (€3.50) per square metre. If the land is not settled by the end of August, the planned construction of the plant will face delays.
