The biggest employers in the automotive sector are not entirely pleased with the current situation in their industry in Slovakia. They say the government is not fulfiling key measures they have agreed upon.
“The important measures listed in a government resolution from December 2017 have not been accomplished,” the Slovak Automotive Industry Association (ZAP) said after the meeting with representatives of Slovakia's four carmakers, as quoted by the SITA newswire.
Although some partial targets have been met, as claimed by ZAP president Alexander Matušek, new and key proposals presented in February 2019 did not make it to another government resolution from April of this year.
The stuck implementation
The car industry plans in the long term, and that is why carmakers are pointing out the main hassles, which may threaten this industry in the future, right now.
“The implementation of resolutions, which should substantially help maintain the competitiveness of the car industry in Slovakia for the next ten years, is still stagnating,” Matušek said, as quoted by SITA.
