SLOVENIA, SUPPORT TO THE PROJECT MAGNA INTERNATIONAL
The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia (GZS) reiterated its support for the Magna International multinational project to build a new facility near Maribor. This decision follows the collection of signatures in support of the planned investment, recently launched by GZS itself. During the round table dedicated to the project in question, in Maribor, Vice-President of Magna Europa, Dieter Althaus, confirmed the interest of his company for the project, bearing in mind that Slovenia was the first choice for this investment. Delo reports that the manager has avoided commenting on delays in obtaining environmental permits, indicating, however the end of 2018 as deadline for the start of production. Over the past few weeks, several criticisms have been raised on the project, especially for the environmental impact of the plant.
