New SARIO chief appointed

MILAN Juráška will be the new general director of the Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO), the Hospodárske noviny daily wrote.

Juráška is to replace the former SARIO chief Roman Kuruc who was recalled from the post in October.

Juráška, who studied system engineering, said his personal ambition in the post would be to try to attract as much foreign direct investment with higher added value as possible on the basis of the new rules for providing state incentives to investors.

He also wants to try to contribute to the strengthening of the country's foreign trade and an effective drawing of the EU funds.
