One of the companies planning to broaden its business here is Chinese PC maker Lenovo, which SARIO said laid out further plans to expand its activities in Slovakia. SARIO stated that Lenovo representatives reported that they had had positive experiences developing business in Slovakia. SARIO, however, did not state exactly what Lenovo is planning to do. Lenovo opened its operations centre for the EMEA region in Bratislava back in 2006.
