Slovaks working abroad for a short-term period are returning home and finding jobs in Slovakia. Analysts of Tatra Banka came to this conclusion when looking more closely at data from Eurostat, the statistics office of the European Union.

Based on these, almost 150,000 Slovaks worked abroad during the second quarter of 2017. This is less than, for example, during the fourth quarter of 2007 when the number of such people exceeded 185,000, the Denník N daily wrote.
