INVESTMENT ADVISORY GUIDE 2008

The Slovak business environment and its challenges

As the turmoil on world markets continues, the impact of the global financial crisis is already being felt in Slovakia. To what degree will Slovakia be able to maintain its status as Central Europe’s tiger economy? Can the business environment of a country whose government’s declared aim is to build a socially-oriented state remain attractive to investors? What are the prevailing trends in Slovakia’s investment environment? The reporters and editors of our 9th annual Investment Advisory Guide set out to answer these questions.

As the turmoil on world markets continues, the impact of the global financial crisis is already being felt in Slovakia. To what degree will Slovakia be able to maintain its status as Central Europe’s tiger economy? Can the business environment of a country whose government’s declared aim is to build a socially-oriented state remain attractive to investors? What are the prevailing trends in Slovakia’s investment environment? The reporters and editors of our 9th annual Investment Advisory Guide set out to answer these questions.

The guide’s annual range of listings and basic information about industrial parks, developers, law & consulting firms is now complemented by comparisons of basic data with EU countries, and detailed information on the labour market and labour costs in Slovakia. The Investment Advisory Guide 2008 will, we hope, make an important contribution to your understanding of the country’s contemporary business environment and its challenges.

The guide was written and edited by The Slovak Spectator team, led by Editor-in-Chief Beata Balogová; it includes a range of pieces written by experts in different fields. The art director of Petit Press, Martin Vančo, prepared the design.

Each subscriber to The Slovak Spectator weekly receives a copy of the Investment Advisory Guide as part of their subscription. The guide can also be purchased at The Slovak Spectator office, or at our online shop, where you can view the new publication’s table of contents.

I wish you an enjoyable and prosperous read.
