Policy Talks

AmCham Slovakia’s mission and goal is to improve the business environment in Slovakia and make sure our society, citizens and businesses are able to thrive. In order to reach our full potential, we have identified two key areas where Slovakia needs to step up, invest in and make it a policy priority to ensure competitiveness and economic growth. These areas are Digital Skills and Data Economy.  

Therefore, we are organizing two policy talks with political representatives aimed at presenting the key figures and statistics about Slovakia’s current standing and what steps need to be taken in the future election period and an opportunity for political parties to present their vision and priorities for making sure that Slovak workforce is skilled and our business are able to thrive and compete internationally.
