Representatives of SARIO are now focusing on attracting US-based companies and they met with potential investors during a trip to the United States starting March 26. The SARIO officials also attended the official opening of the Slovak pavilion in Silicon Valley, California, the centre of many high-tech companies.

SARIO Director General Robert Šimončič commented that many potential investment projects are currently under discussion with US-based businesses and that “we want to present Slovakia as a country destined for research and development investments”, SITA wrote.
