The investment agency was involved in 22 investment projects during that period, SARIO spokeswoman Jana Murinová told news wire TASR.

The largest volume of investments went to Banská Bystrica and Nitra regions, with five projects each, while Trenčín and Žilina regions received four projects each. The remaining regions attracted one project each.

Most projects were in the spheres of chemicals, rubber and plastics production, and in the car, engineering and electrotechnical industries.

"One novelty is a completed tourism project,” Murinová said told TASR.

SARIO began attracting investments in this area last year while the agency has ten tourism investment projects running, according to Murinová.
