A financial contribution for Slovak entrepreneurs meant to assist them in attending international events will be allocated to 28 companies this year, Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO) spokesperson Jana Murinová told the TASR newswire on November 26.

According to Murinová, the total amount of the contributions stemming from the state budget and EU-structural funds will reach Sk67 million (€2.22 million).

"There could be even more applicants for the contribution, but they were discouraged by the complicated bureaucracy before, during and after their projects finish," said Ján Krak, SARIO's EU-structural funds section director.

The subsidy is aimed to support Slovak entrepreneurs to attend fairs, exhibitions and business missions that help them establish international co-operation and assert themselves on foreign markets. TASR
