At the meeting, local entrepreneurs learned more about current options to use European funds to support businesses, in the fields of innovative technologies and employment for young people, the TASR newswire reported.

Filip Roháček, spokesman for the mayor of Banská Bystrica, said the event was another result of the town's continuing co-operation with AmCham, TASR reported. Around 20 businessmen attended the event.

"We've decided to make 2013 a year of regional development. We want to focus on regions where we weren't present before," said Rastislav Puchala, the director of AmCham’s Košice branch. "Central Slovakia has slipped our attention until now. During the course of 2013, we'd be happy to organise a job fair and study visits for students in the Banská Bystrica Region as well as for any jobseekers."
