Slovak-British Business Council presented at Poprad's Aquacity

A NEWLY created NGO, the Slovak-British Business Council (SBBC), was introduced on April 9 in Aquacity in Poprad (Prešov region), the TASR news agency reported.

The SBBC aims to create a space for new projects and to stimulate economic development on the know-how principle. The NGO has been formed by the group of commercially- focussed companies and professionals to enlarge and improve the business environment in Slovakia.

The key spheres of SBBC activity are defined as the information society, science and research, innovative ecological technologies, optimizing the business environment and education and employment.

"The SBBC provides scope for the realisation of unconventional ideas, for people with the most audacious ambitions," says Ján Telenský, the majority shareholder in Aquacity. "We'll be evaluating risks and offering solutions to investors," said SBBC President David Hodgson.
