THE SLOVAK public thinks improving the business environment would bring more jobs to Slovakia than large-scale public investments, according to a survey conducted by the MVK polling agency among 1,145 respondents between January 5 and January 11, the SITA newswire reported.

Better conditions for employers, including less bureaucracy, lower taxes and payroll levies, and a more flexible Labour Code, would be the best way to fight Slovakia’s high unemployment rate according to 44.3 percent of the respondents. Only 27.6 percent of the survey respondents supported the idea of creating new jobs through state investments in large-scale public projects such as power stations or highways.

MVK reported that respondents who said they support the opposition Smer party also preferred a better business environment to large-scale public investments, by a ratio of 40.2 percent to 37.3 percent.
Those who said they support the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) supported the alternative of a better business environment to large public projects by a ratio of 62.8 percent to 14.4 percent, SITA wrote.
