with 25 investment projects, about 30 percent more than in 2013. Thanks to these investments there should be 4600 new jobs created.

“The 2014 figures show that Slovakia is still attractive for investors,” said SARIO’s head
Robert Šimončič, as quoted by TASR. “In addition to the positive external effects the main reason [for increase] is that SARIO can promote our country very well.”

Of 25 projects 13 are new businesses and 12 are expansions of already existing ones. The planned investments should reach €170 million, according to SARIO spokesman Richard Dírer.

A significant part of investments head to the regions with high unemployment rates. New job positions will occur in segment of gum and plastic production, shared services centres, electrical engineering or engineering, Dírer said.
