New minister and Rusko disagree on number of jobs created

OVER the last two years big foreign investors created 9,839 new jobs in Slovakia according to new Economy Minister Jirko Malchárek. In that time the state has provided Sk15 billion (€385 million) in direct or indirect assistance to the investors.

Contribution per one created job was Sk1.5 million (€38,000), the daily SME reported.

Former Economy Minister Pavol Rusko, however, promotes his party by claiming that 30,000 jobs were created. Maroš Havran, Rusko's spokesman disagrees with the information provided by the Economy Ministry.

He said that the ANO sees no sense in reacting to Malchárek's statements until the new minister gets to grips with the issues properly.
