Slovakia, the Chinese Gateway to Europe?
Slovakia could find itself inundated with Chinese companies if the plan of the Chinese European Centre takes shape near Senec as planned.
Possibly hundreds of Chinese companies could be using Slovakia as their stepping stone to the rest of Europe, as the new Centre will act as a channel to ease the entry of the companies to European markets.
The company UMC Slovakia is behind the idea and company director Vladislav Khabliev concluded an agreement with intermediary Anhui Publishing Group to get Chinese companies interested in using the centre, which will be the biggest of its kind in Europe.
The project counts with a budget of around EUR 100 million with many potential jobs arising as a result.
