The Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO) currently registers 102 investment projects.
These projects could bring investments worth EUR 3.5 billion and create nearly 24,000 jobs in Slovakia, with interest being shown by investors from various fields. Potential investments involve supplies for the automotive industry as well as the electrotechnical industry, production of plastic components, metal structures, production of electrical appliances, food production, a center of shared services, and others.
SARIO tries to locate investment projects in particular in eastern Slovakia, which has the highest unemployment rate. Last year SARIO completed twenty investment projects that are to create about 2,000 new jobs. At the end of last year, the agency registered 69 investment projects in the “phase of active decision-making”, with the planned investment volume of up to EUR 2.9 billion and the potential to create over 19,000 jobs.
