Slovakia claims top spot in CEE investment survey

Foreign investors operating in Slovakia view the country as the most attractive location for placing investments among the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, a survey by the Slovak-German Business and Industry Chamber (SNOPK) published on March 26 showed. The poll, starting in February, gathered responses from close to 200 European companies. “The Czech Republic replaced Slovakia in top spot last year in the ranking of the best investment locations,” SNOPK's Markus Halt told TASR newswire. “Slovakia and the Czech Republic have now swapped places, however, as Slovakia is back in top position.” The survey rated investors' views on a range from 1 to 5, with 1 being “highly satisfied”. Slovakia received a grade of 2.55, with the Czech Republic coming in right after on a grade of 2.56. Poland and Estonia came in at 2.67 and 2.83 points, respectively.

Most of the 196 firms polled do not forecast economic development will be better than last year, but their expectations for their own company are rosier.
