Carmaker Kia Motors Slovakia will increase both its production of passenger cars and the number of people it employs, Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico announced following a working visit to the company’s production plant in Teplička nad Váhom (Žilina Region) on Wednesday, August 12, the TASR newswire wrote.

The facility began full-scale production in 2006. In Fico's opinion, the impact of such large companies on Slovakia's economy is absolutely clear. Any change could cause serious problems, he pointed out. In this vein, he highlighted the efforts of Kia to increase its production by the end of 2010 from 201,000 to some 240,000 cars by launching new models, and raising the number of employees from the current 2,700 to 3,000. In addition, Fico said that the subject of his working talks with representatives of the carmaker included the positive results of the car-scrapping bonus scheme, as well as Kia's planned investments.
