      • Volkswagen doubled its car production in Slovakia over the past five years;
      • Currently, 274 automotive production plants operate in the country.

  • Disadvantages of Slovakia company registration

    1. Slovakia was negatively ranked as the 65th freest economy in the Heritage Foundation’s 2019 Index of Economic Freedom, a measure of freedom;
    2. Slovakia is negatively ranked as the 57th least corrupt country in the world, according to the 2018 Corruption Perceptions Index by Transparency International, a global measure of corruption amongst public officials and politicians;
    3. Slovakia is negatively ranked as the 42nd most competitive economy in the world in the Global Competitiveness Report 2019;
    4. The country is outside of top 100 global countries in terms of effectiveness of institutions, according to WEF;
    5. The official language for doing business in Slovakia is Slovak. As a result, all non-Slovak speaking foreign entrepreneurs are likely to face communication barriers in the country. Therefore, most of the non-Slovak speaking foreign entrepreneurs are required to hire local suppliers to overcome the language barrier.
