Fewer Slovaks move abroad for work

Fewer Slovaks are moving to foreign countries to find work, the Pravda daily wrote on December 3.

According to the Slovak Statistics Office, figures for this year show that the number of Slovak citizens working abroad is growing at a slower pace than last year. In the first quarter of 2007, the number of people who left to work abroad increased by 34,000 year-on-year. That shrank to 8,000 year-on-year in the third quarter.

Most Slovaks who work abroad go to the Czech Republic. It’s followed by Britain, Hungary, Austria and Ireland.
