B2G and B2B meetings
21.11.2018, Bratislava, Slovakia
After our successful official visit to Bratislava in September 2018 as a member of the Austrian delegation headed by Vienna mayor, AVK GmbH is in Slovak capital again – this time for the individual meetings with the representatives of the local authorities and business community.
The OECD in 2017 reported: the Slovak Republic continues exhibiting robust economic performance, with strong growth backed by a sound financial sector, low public debt and high international competitiveness drawing on large inward investment. In 2017, Slovakia was ranked by the International Monetary Fund as the 39th richest country in the world (out of 187 countries), with purchasing power parity per capita GDP of $32,895. The country used to be dubbed the "Tatra Tiger". The name derives from the local Tatra mountain range.
Slovakia successfully transformed from a centrally planned economy to a market-driven economy. The Slovak economy is one of the fastest growing economies in Europe and 3rd fastest in eurozone (2017). Unemployment, peaking at 19% at the end of 1999, decreased to 5,95% at the end of 2017, lowest recorded rate in Slovak history. Slovakia is an attractive country for foreign investors mainly because of its low wages, low tax rates and well educated labour force. In recent years, Slovakia has been pursuing a policy of encouraging foreign investment.
