Overview About International Trade in Slovakia

Main Industry Sectors

The agriculture sector is not much developed in Slovakia and it represents less than 3.5% of the GDP. The main agricultural products in the country are cereals, potatoes, sugar beets and grapes. The mountainous area of Slovakia has vast forests and pastures which are used for intensive sheep grazing, and it is rich in mineral resources including iron, copper, lead, and zinc.

The secondary sector represents about a third of the GDP. The heavy industry sector such as metal and steel are still in a restructuring phase. High value-added industries such as electronics, engineering and petro-chemicals are installed in the western part of the country. Some sectors, like the automobile and consumer goods, offer attractive investment opportunities to foreign investors.

The services sector represents about 60% of the GDP. It is dominated by trade and real estate.  The development of tourism can also become an important sector for the Slovak economy in the next following years.
