Familirising institutional and private investors with the situation in the European Union from the viewpoint of the Slovak Council of the EU Presidency following the Brexit vote in the recent British referendum was the aim of the late-July visit of Finance Minister Peter Kažimír to China and South Korea.

The trip also focused on exploring opportunities for mutual investment and meeting investors who have already been developing activities in Slovakia, the TASR newswire reported.

In the South Korean capital Seoul, Slovak officials met with representatives of Samsung Electronics, who stressed the importance of investing in Slovakia from the viewpoint of the company’s presence on the markets of EU-member countries.

A presentation of investment opportunities for South Korean institutional and private investors in the form of foreign direct investments and participation in projects such as the Finance Ministry-supervised Slovak Investment Holding (SIH) was on the agenda of talks between Slovak officials and Korea Investment Corporation plus South Korean trade-investment agency KOTRA, TASR wrote.
