IN SHORT

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 dismissed in October.

Juráška, who studied systems engineering, said his personal ambition is to try and 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 EU funds.
