SARIO woos investors from the US

FOUR thousand new jobs and investments worth €350 million are under discussion in tentative talks between the Slovak Agency for Investment and Trade Development (SARIO) and fifteen US companies, the SITA newswire reported, noting that interest from US-based investors is now greater than interest from European investors for the first time ever.

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.
