Facts and Figures

If we want to speak about the economic structure of Eastern Slovakia, we have to go back to the period after the Second World War, which is characterised by the rapid industrialisation of the region.

Today, in terms of gross added value, the services sector (52.4 %), industry and construction (35.3 %) and the field of professional, scientific and technical activities (7.8 %) have the highest share, in this regard. If we look at this structure in terms of revenues, we see the domination of industrial manufacturing, which accounts for more than 70 % of all revenues from the sale of its own outputs and goods.
