Slovakia must build its potential in the knowledge economyThe digital transformation of industry and business is taking place around the world, and Slovakia should focus on maximizing its potential benefits for our country. Digitization affects almost every aspect of life and has the potential to become a major accelerator of growth in the domestic and global economy in the coming years.
As a small open economy is fully dependent on the global market, Slovakia is the country within the OECD where the risk of loss, resp. job changes due to automation. However, within the network of companies that AmCham represents in Slovakia, we believe that automation is a means to increase productivity and efficiency of work processes. Slovakia must build its potential in the knowledge economy.
