The Economy Ministry together with the National Union of Employers (RÚZ) has launched a new website, BusinessFriendly.sk, intended to allow entrepreneurs to express their opinion on legislation affecting business. Thanks to the portal, businesspeople will be able to add comments and suggestions as part of the public discussion over legislation which limits them, adds to costs or is unrealisable, the ministry reported on its website.

“Nearly every day I encounter various opinions which talk about unfavourable state of doing business and investing in Slovakia,” said Economy Minister Tomáš Malatinský, as quoted in the press release.

Malatinský added that even when he was the head of the Federation of Employers’ Associations (AZZZ) he criticised the inappropriate administrative burden for businesspeople, but also tried to look for solutions.

The ministry says that the suggestions will help it to define the measures that will be necessary to improve the business environment in Slovakia, as well as to decrease the administrative burden of businesses.

The new website will also feature a competition called ‘Bureaucratic Nonsense of the Year’, added Marián Jusko, head of the RÚZ, the TASR newswire wrote.

The establishment of the internet portal is one of the measures which are included in recommendations to improve the business environment in Slovakia. The Economy Ministry will present them together with a report about the current state of the business environment in Slovakia at a cabinet meeting due to take place on April 3, the SITA newswire wrote.
