The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development is launching a new database of Slovak food and its producers - Slovak Food Export. This tool should help Slovak producers to establish trade contacts abroad. According to the Agriculture Minister Gabriela Matečná, supporting the export activities of food producers can reduce Slovakia's negative food trade balance, strengthen domestic production and increase food safety. Any Slovak food producing company that exports food or includes this in its long-term strategy can enrol in the database for free. The Agriculture Ministry also plans to distribute the database to foreign embassies and economic diplomats who have Slovakia in their portfolio, thus supporting Slovak commercial diplomacy.
