The interest of investors in Slovakia persists despite the economic downturn. Preparations on a total of 154 investment projects have been launched, the Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO) told newswire TASR.

The projects, which are heading to the energy, automotive, rubber and plastics sectors, represent a total value of €4.97 billion and have the potential to create 29,042 jobs, SARIO spokesman Marian Jánošík told TASR.

The investment agency expects investor interest to continue to rise in 2010.

"We believe that we'll manage to conclude several projects on which we're working and are close to a final decision," Jánošík said.
