Economy Ministry: Hankook investment still open

ECONOMY Minister Jirko Malchárek believes Slovakia is still in the game to land a planned Sk20 billion investment by South-Korean tire producer Hankook Tire in a factory in Central Europe

At an October 19 meeting with the head of the South Korean representation in Slovakia, Junheon Jeong, it was made clear that the company has not yet made a final decision on the location of the plant, Economy Ministry spokesperson Dagmar Hlavatá told the SITA news agency.

"The economy minister still views this matter as open," said Hlavatá, adding that Malchárek was interested in seeking an agreement between Slovakia and Hankook.

Earlier this week the Bloomberg news wire wrote that Slovakia had been excluded from the list of possible locations for Hankook's new plant.
