Slovakia opens new business center mostly for Chinese firms
Among the first companies coming to Senec are manufacturers of lighting, soy products, skates and avionics systems.
The administration-logistics center, with a capacity of 10,000 square metres, is divided into sections of technology, food, retail and a space for expositions.
Tuesday saw the opening of the first 1,800 square metres, with a total of some 10 million euros ($11 million) invested in the project.
"We've prepared 80 administration-expo units for our partners at D1 Expo-Business Center," explained development company IPEC group director Ivan Carnogursky, who was the main investor.
The center provides services to non-European manufacturers entering European markets, from administration and presentation of products to logistics, marketing and business solutions.
The grand opening ceremony of the center was also attended by Chinese Ambassador to Slovakia Lin Lin and economic department head of the U.S. Embassy to Slovakia Liam Sullivan.
Support for the project was provided by the Slovak Economy Ministry and Senec municipality. ■
