Governmental agency CzechInvest’s representatives will attempt to gain new investments from the automotive sector for the Czech Republic via an automotive tour of the United States. CzechInvest’s general director Karel Kučera has stated that the goal is to boost the representation of investors in hi-tech segments, such as ecological drive and/or smart and assistance systems. As part of the event, CzechInvest will participate e.g. on the Autoshow New York international car exhibition in late March/early April. The two-week tour will continue in other states of the Mid-West. In mid-April, CzechInvest plans to attend the SAE World Congress & Exhibition.
