Slovak Ambassador Visits Linglong Tire in China
Slovakia’s Ambassador to China, Dusan Bella, and Economic Counsellor Miroslav Tomo paid a visit to Linglong Tire on 18th May. They visited Linglong’s R&D centre and passenger car radial tyres plant #6 in Zhaoyuan, Linglong Tire’s HQ, accompanied by Liu Zhancun, Vice President of Linglong Tire, and Li Wei, deputy general manager. The two guests spoke highly of Linglong tyre’s technical level and intelligent manufacturing level.
After the visit, they held a friendly talk. Ambassador Bella and Counsellor Tomo introduced Slovakian investment policy and taxation and labour provisions to Linglong Tire and said the Slovakian government was willing to communicate directly with Linglong Tire and provide accurate and reliable information and policy to help Linglong build its second overseas manufacturing base. At the end of the meeting, they invited Linglong Tire to invest and build factories in Slovakia.
Slovakia is located in central Europe with convenient traffic conditions. Its annual output of automobiles is around one million and its speed of economic growth is described as the fastest among the four countries in central Europe. Currently, more than 100 Korean companies and a number of German companies are setting up factories in Slovakia.
As an important part of Linglong Tire ‘3+3’ strategy, LLIT, Linglong Tire’s first overseas manufacturing base, is said to have achieved great success in Thailand, contributing to the local economic development and social welfare. Therefore, the location of Linglong’s second overseas base has aroused widespread interest in many European countries. Currently, Czech, Slovakia, Belgium and other countries have sent investment proposals to Linglong Tire.
