Cooperation Profiles

Perspective areas of Slovak export are still the automotive industry, electrical equipment, electricity distribution devices, measuring instruments and appliances, refrigerating equipment, iron and steel, lighting products, telecommunications equipment, office supplies and paper products, wood for the construction industry, furniture, Paper, sporting goods, equipment used in certain industries. The market for engineering products is still relatively small, as industrial production is very limited. There is the possibility of applying for energy projects (new capacity, reconstruction, maintenance), water supply, transport and construction works on infrastructure development, hospital construction. Kuwait citizens often visit Slovakia (especially Piešťany) during the summer months in the spa tourism. However, due to the demands of the clients, it is necessary that Slovak business entities operating in the spa industry offer stays at the level of five-star resorts. The situation with regard to the mechanical engineering products is more demanding, as there is a high level of competition in these countries, especially from Asian countries whose price of goods is lower than in Slovakia. Of course, there is a lot of competition from the US, the Western European countries, China, South Korea, India and Pakistan.
