Industrial park in southern Slovakia expected to create 240 jobs in 2011.

By bne IntelliNews June 8, 2010
A new industrial park, located on a brown-field site in the town of Rimavska Sobota in southern Slovakia, should create 240 new jobs in 2011, the mayor of the nearby Klenovec municipality, Pavel Struhar, announced. He explained that new jobs would be created by four investors, which had already expressed interest in starting production at the park. Employment at the park is expected to increase to 700 people after the initial stage of the investment projects. Park spokesman Pavel Machava, however, warned that the park development was at risk since the Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO) had refused to approve a non-refundable budget contribution, which would have been used to cover the modernisation of the production site of a former plant in the area. He added that the park already appealed the SARIO decision.
