Drafting and deciding on a strategy for Košice and Prešov concerning foreign direct investments is the goal of the conference organised by the American Chamber of Commerce in Slovakia (AmCham) under the auspices of Economy Minister Tomáš Malatinský, the TASR newswire reported on December 4.

“The aim of the conference is to point to the fact that Košice is here, ready for investments,” said AmCham Košice director Rastislav Puchala, as quoted by TASR. “We want to present a portfolio that would be appealing to investors.”

Puchala added that dozens of investment plans have been drafted so far. These could materialise as early as in 2013. Yet, the individual investors behind these plans did not want to appear in the media at this phase, TASR wrote.

Other potential investors risk being discouraged by the poor road infrastructure and weak workforce mobility in the region, Puchala warned.
