Welcome to the website of Východoslovenská investičná agentúra / East Slovak Investment Agency, the abbreviation of which, i.e. VIA, can be translated as a way/path, which the founder followed. It is the path that was lacked by our region and that is not easy considering our goals. The decision of the founders to establish the Agency resulted from an analysis, which clearly pointed out an inconsistency of activities in our region. These proved to be, in most of the cases, duplicated and showed the results not meeting the expectations. Having taken into account the above fact, which, many times, played against the reduction of interregional differences both, in Slovakia and in Europe, the founder decided to, first of all, get these activities "under one roof" so as to have an agency that would be a professional, technical and qualified partner of all the governmental authorities of the Slovak Republic and European Union institutions, the goal of which would be to ensure the actual fulfilment of proclaimed reduction of interregional differences and to have the East Slovak Region take the position, it justly deserves in united and cultural Europe. Thanks to mutual efforts of its members, the Agency is ready to meet the above and it is open to new ideas, activities and programs as well as to new potential members.
