Description

Dutch company Leaf has decided to invest in Slovakia. Its new subsidiary will be established in the industrial zone where the South Korean Hankook Tires Company intended to operate before deciding to invest in Hungary. According to the Mayor of Levice the new investment of SKK 1 billion will effectively help to compensate the gap in regional employment which emerged after the decision of Hankook Tires not to come to the region.
