OVER the last two years big foreign investors created 9,839 new jobs in Slovakia, according to recently appointed Economy Minister Jirko Malchárek. In that time the state has provided Sk15 billion (€385 million) in direct or indirect assistance to the investors.
The state contribution per one created job was Sk1.5 million (€38,000), the daily SME reported.
Former Economy Minister Pavol Rusko, however, promotes his ANO party by claiming that 30,000 jobs were created while he was in office. Maroš Havran, Rusko's spokesman, disagrees with the information provided by the Economy Ministry.
