WEF: Tourism in Slovakia lacks support

On March 5, the Sme daily reports on the results of a report by the World Economic Forum (WEF) on tourism competitiveness. Slovakia was placed 38th in the rankings, ahead of more than 90 other countries. However, Hungary, which last year ranked behind Slovakia, outperformed its neighbour this year; and the Czech Republic increased its existing lead over Slovakia.

Slovakia's weak points are said to be insufficient state support for tourism and poor promotion of Slovakia, the low quality of the country’s roads, a lack of reliability in the police service, and problems with the air transport infrastructure. On the positive side, the tax burden and the presence of foreign capital are contributing to the further development of the industry. SITA
