Representatives of the Slovak Agency for Investment and Trade Development are now focusing on the US and they have scheduled a working visit there this week to attract potential investors to Slovakia as well as to attend the official opening of the Slovak pavilion in Silicon Valley, the centre of high-tech industry in the US.

SARIO Director General Robert Šimončič commented that many potential investment projects are currently from the US, adding that "we want to present Slovakia in the US as a country destined for research and development investments".
