After the Velvet Divorce from the Czech Republic in the early 1990s, Slovakia was generally perceived to be a country with weak prospects for sustained economic growth. Despite this perception, Slovakia has maintained robust economic growth and today, the country is ranked fourth in the CEE region in terms of GDP generation. Slovakia is committed to investing in infrastructure and was quick to introduce a flat tax rate of 19% – a development that has been instrumental in attracting a large numbers of investors. Areas of the Slovak economy that are currently of particular interest to foreign investors are the machinery and precise engineering industry, the automotive industry, metallurgy and metal processing, electronics, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, research and development (R&D), technology centres and business process outsourcing (BPO).
