During the open discussion representatives of Brazil were interested in the automotive sector – mainly why Slovakia is the largest producer of cars per capita. In the sugar processing sector, their questions were directed mainly to the representative of the SPPK (sugar export/import, food industry in SR).At the end of the meeting, the representative of PRK Partners answered questions about the legal establishment of the company in Slovakia and provided basic data on the different forms of business in Slovakia. He also discussed the conditions under which a foreign citizen can do business in Slovakia and in the EU.
