THE CONSTRUCTION of a new industrial park to support investments in the region started in the city of Poprad on June 28.

Estimated costs of the project are Sk175 million (€4.55 million), the bulk of which is to be met by the European Union, with Sk20 million (€520,000) from the Poprad city council, the TASR news wire reported.

This year, the industrial park will provide jobs for 400 people on nine hectares of land. Later, 1,000 more jobs will be created and the park will expand its area to 20 hectares.

"The premises will be offered to mechanical and electrical engineering firms," said Stanislav Corej of the development firm RoTTel, of Prešov.

Whirlpool head Erico Biondi has mentioned two Italian firms that are interested in locating in Poprad, Danko claims.
