German investors: We are satisfied

NINETY-TWO percent of German companies operating in Slovakia would repeat their decision to invest in Slovakia, the Hospodárske noviny reported. Germany is one of the biggest foreign investors in Slovakia.

In the Czech Republic, more than two thirds of German investors said they would invest there again, but about 23 percent said they would choose a different country - with Slovakia in first place. The survey's results were based on figures gained from quizzing German investors in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, and Hungary.

Sixty-three of 630 German companies in Slovakia took part in the survey. Dieter Mankowski, a German economic delegate in Slovakia, considers that number to be representative.
