Representatives of the management of the Moravia-Silesia region (MSK) are negotiating with a potential investor, who might build a plant in the region and offer jobs. Deputy governor Ivan Strachoň (KSČM) said that the region is currently negotiating with the Polish side, which is interested in placing a plant for the wood-processing industry in the region. He added that the new investor may launch a plant this year and offer work to up to 150 people. The region has offered a number of localities to the investor, for example the industrial zone in Horní Suchá, where the town offers a total of 5.6 hectars of vacant plots, or the zone in Havířov, which has 20 hectars.
