Business Breakfast in Košice

Join us for an important follow-up discussion on the recent recommendation from our project, "Mapping the Potential of Eastern Slovakia," aimed at enhancing the region's appeal for foreign talent and the diaspora!

This initiative not only promotes the region globally but also improves access to local job opportunities and enhances language support for essential services. As this recommendation already has some traction, we would like to draw your attention to the policy efforts underway to implement it.

Together, we'll explore the data and discuss the current status of implementation at the municipal, regional, and practical levels, seeking opportunities for collaboration. How close are we to achieving our goal of making Eastern Slovakia more appealing by establishing a dynamic office as the primary point of contact?

Let's unite our efforts to realize a more prosperous and inclusive future for Eastern Slovakia. Additionally, this event offers an excellent networking opportunity, allowing participants to connect with policy makers, ask important questions and mingle with business partners.
