Based on it, MH Invest will be able to more quickly – in the public interest – arrange and expropriate the plots necessary for the strategic park, the SITA newswire wrote.

“The building of the Strategic Park will have positive impact on the whole Slovak economy, especially on the reduction of unemployment and the improved offer of jobs in Nitra Region, improved transport infrastructure, mainly by building roads; and also in the support for, and development of entrepreneurs and the business environment,” Economy Ministry officials told SITA.
