When our Prime Minister Theresa May visited Bratislava earlier this summer, she explained that while the UK is leaving the EU, we are not leaving Europe or withdrawing from the world.

The UK has been and always will be a trading nation and our overseas partners are guaranteed a strong, business friendly environment in our wonderful country. The UK had the fastest growing economy in the G7 last year and will continue to be a great place to do business. That will not change. Potential investors will be pleased to know that the UK is the highest ranked major economy in terms of ease of doing business. London is regarded as the world’s leading financial hub and its creative and entrepreneurial spirit continues to thrive with a wealth of opportunities for our trading partners. Leaving the European Union will open new opportunities for investors as the UK expands its trading activity around the world.
 
The UK is an important export market for many Slovak businesses and increasing source of investment. Trade and investment between our countries is flourishing. Overall bilateral trade grew over the last five years by 79 percent and we saw the significant JLR investment last year. It is certainly our desire to secure the best possible trade deal which works for both the UK and the EU. An agreement that will enable trade between the UK and EU member states, such as Slovakia, as simple as possible.
