International Migration: A Driver of Human Evolution?
We are moving towards a Global Slovakia, writes Zuzana Palovic. The supply of new incoming talent is already meeting growing demand. Slovak-based multinational corporations eagerly absorb these brains. In an economy where startups are looking to transition into international markets, it is in fact local businesses that can benefit the most. These youngsters are the golden ticket. Cheaper than expats, they can get the job done just as well. They are a source of new perspectives, capable of comparing Slovakia to the world and identifying not only what is wrong, but also what is great about our country. Cosmopolitan yet proud of their homeland, they come back to evoke change. Just a minority, they embody a burst of energy and confidence that is a breath of fresh air. From departure to return, we are witnessing the birth of new global Slovakia. One Slovak at a time.
