INVESTORS IN MSK
Thanks to its location, transport accessibility, convenient
life costs and high-quality services, Ostrava is appealing
also to foreigners. They comprise 15% of all employees in
the BS sector here.
The investment climate in the Moravian-Silesian region is
not only tuned to large industrial companies, as is often
mentioned, but also to other sectors with higher added
value. Moravskoslezské Investice a Development, a.s.
(MSID) is promoting the Moravian-Silesian Region as
being an attractive place for investments.
MSID is trying to develop activities for the cultivation of
a regional investment climate on a long-term basis. The
company maps and registers business premises in the
region and offers them to potential buyers. The company
also provides the consequent care about these investors,
actively researching their plans, needs and restrictions,
while participating in their troubleshooting.
In the business services sector, MSID is currently
developing a concept for the development of this field in
Ostrava and other Moravian-Silesian towns. As the Nordic
companies already settled here, MSID is trying to target
these markets first and create a Nordic ecosystem here.
