Germany Road show

Monday, 19. September 2011

Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO) will present our country in the Federal Republic of Germany. SARIO in cooperation with the Ministry of Economy of the SR prepared a series of investment seminars and individual meetings. This road show focuses on presenting Slovakia through the project “Business Friendly Slovakia“ and establishing contacts with new potential investors.



Germany is the most important business partner of Slovakia and it is also the country of origin of the largest volume of investment. Moreover Germany leads the ranking of investors with finalized projects that were established in Slovakia thanks to SARIO assistance.



“We strive to present Slovakia as the country favorable not only to the industrial production but as well as the country predestined for investment into research and development. I am sure that this is the way to our goal: turn SARIO into the gateway of investment influx to Slovakia”, Robert Šimončič, SARIO CEO said.



The series of investment seminars will take place with the participation of Juraj Miškov, the Minister of Economy of the SR on September 19th – 23rd, 2011 in the most significant economic centers of Germany (Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt/Mohan, and Munich). Slovakia will be presented by R. Šimončič, SARIO CEO, A. Gulová, Deputy SARIO CEO, and SARIO project managers.



The investment seminars program includes as well speeches of established foreign investors in Slovakia who will present their first hand experience with Slovak business environment. The latest foreign direct investment trend shows that the established foreign investors have good experience with Slovakia. They also highly appreciate the efforts to simplify and improve Slovak business environment.



SARIO strives to be the modern agency perceived by the foreign investors and domestic partners as the vehicle for growth and investment. The agency aims to assist in the development of the Slovak economy as much as possible by attracting new investment and supporting foreign trade that will be eventually projected in the new jobs and increase of the living standards in Slovakia.
