During the two days, he is also expected to talk to British investors in Slovakia and representatives of the judicial and legal community. He expressed his pleasure of coming to the first working visit to Slovakia and of meeting his Slovak colleagues.

One of the issues will be the help offered for British businesspeople throughout Europe and strengthening the security of British citizens. Clarke was chosen as Justice Minister as he is seen as a pioneer of the fight against corruption in his country and anti-corruption measures will be part of his talks as well.
