With Heureka to Slovakia

Slovakia is a country of 5,4 million people strategically located in the geographic heart of Europe. The Slovak market is increasingly dominated by the automotive, electronics, engineering, tourism and service industries. In addition to its strategic location and educated population, Slovakia’s stable macroeconomic policies have made it a good place for exporters to do business.

Slovakia adopted the euro (EUR) as its currency on January 1, 2009, becoming the 16th member of the European Monetary Union, resulting in the facilitation of trade through lower transaction costs, higher pricing transparency and greater monetary stability. Slovakia has a positive financial outlook according to Moody’s and a stable financial outlook according to S&P and TE rating agencies. Real GDP growth reached 4,1% in 2018, one of the fastest growth rates among all EU countries.
