“The awarded national investment agencies were successful in obtaining investment projects, expansion of existing plants,” said representatives of the Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO), as quoted by SITA.

SARIO made agreements related to 32 investment projects worth €1.2 billion in total last year. Thanks to these projects more than 8,000 new jobs will be established. The majority of the projects will be realised in disadvantaged regions, with most investments going to the automotive, metalworking and electro-technical industries, SARIO said. Since the beginning of this year SARIO has agreed six investment projects worth €280 million in total, which will bring nearly 1,200 new jobs, SITA reported.
