ECONOMY Minister Juraj Miškov on March 14 confirmed plans by US-based multinational Honeywell International to invest over €38 million in Slovakia. The investment will create at least 446 new jobs in Prešov, producing turbochargers designed for cars and trucks , the TASR newswire reported.
The Economy Ministry intends during an upcoming cabinet session to submit a proposal on providing Honeywell with investment assistance.
“The government will then act on the investor’s request by issuing a decision on the proposal for investment assistance,” the ministry stated, as quoted by TASR.
The ministry said that Honeywell ha d fulfilled all criteria required under Slovak and EU law.
