A NEW foreign investment is coming to the Spiš region of northern Slovakia, more precisely to the village of Kojšov in the Gelnica district.

A NEW foreign investment is coming to the Spiš region of northern Slovakia, more precisely to the village of Kojšov in the Gelnica district.

A British company is planning to produce exclusive gift packaging materials in the village, with 20 new jobs becoming available before March 2011 and the possibility of an additional 30 jobs opening up in the next two years.

The village of 744 residents currently has an unemployment rate of 27 percent.



The new facility will be located in three newly-built production halls which were supposed to become the home of a producer of electrical components for cars.

But the halls remained empty after that company scrapped its plan, the Sme daily reported.


The production halls will be adjusted to the needs of the new investor no later than the beginning of 2011.
