INVESTORS from Germany active in the sphere of engineering are likely to create new jobs in Slovakia, Economy Minister Pavol Pavlis suggested in an interview with the TASR newswire.

“I visited potential investors in Germany two weeks ago. We’re waiting for their response now,” said Pavlis.

“It’s one of the largest companies in the world, and there’s a potential that they’ll expand their production in Slovakia,” said Pavlis, adding that this should take place in two phases. The investors should create around 200 jobs in the first stage, and a further 1,000 jobs in the second phase.

“One benefit of this investment lies in the fact that they have a significant interest in cooperation with young people and universities,” said Pavlis, adding that the investment concerns jobs with higher added value.
