The Embassy of the Slovak Republic in Sweden, the Embassy of Sweden in Vienna, Austria, the Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO) and Business Sweden – the Swedish Trade & Invest Council, have the honor to invite you to participate in the breakfast seminar “Business Opportunities in Slovakia”.

The aim of the seminar is to provide you with qualified information regarding the potential of doing business in or with Slovakia for Swedish companies. Slovakia, a stable country, well positioned in the heart of Europe, offers suitable investment environment with skilled workforce and long industrial tradition. As one of the fastest growing members of the Eurozone, many Swedish companies already discovered the potential of business opportunities offered in this country in fields of investment and trade.

After a brief introduction of the Slovak market and its specifics, we will briefly cover what type of opportunities there are in the segments such as engineering, automotive, wood industry or healthcare. You will also be able to listen to first-hand experience of doing business in Slovakia by a Swedish company and receive important legal and tax advice and afterwards talk to all the experts individually.
