According to Raymond Law, representative of Luda Development Limited, the company decided to invest in Slovakia due to the country’s strategic geographical location in the centre of Europe, language closeness with neighbouring countries, and membership in the European Union and the eurozone. Luda Development is active in health care, mining raw materials and import of minerals waters.
