Chinese investors might be interested in the flying car of Slovak designer Stefan Klein, as the Slovak News Agency learned at this year's China International Import Expo opened on November 5 in Shanghai.
The vehicle is planned to enter mass production within three years. As Klein stressed, it is a long-distance run to achieve success in the Chinese market. “It's like the automotive industry ten years ago. First, the car producers looked to the Chinese market with contempt but today they would be in loss without it. The same will happen in the aviation industry,” Klein said, adding that the meeting with Chinese investors is planned for this week.
Klein ́s prototype of the flying car and the food supplements producer Neoduall are the only Slovak representatives of the country ́s delegation led by Deputy Minister for Investments and Informatisation Richard Rasi (Smer-SD).
“Despite the fact that the Slovak companies do not have a larger representation at the expo, they still have a lot to offer to the world. I am glad that at this important event at least these two companies from our small Slovakia have their stands,” said Rasi, his office quoting, adding that businessmen have a chance to establish contacts with Chinese companies in Shanghai and later in Beijing.
