Traditionally, the Czech Republic has been one of Slovakia's most significant economic partners in several areas as well as in trade, which reached €12 billion in 2010, a figure second only to trade with Germany.

The Czech President will also meet Parliamentary Speaker Richard Sulík and Prime Minister Iveta Radičová.
