Survival Kit

Dear friends, potential investors and business partners,


The Regional Development Agency of South Moravia brings you an updated edition of Survival Kit, which is regularly published since 2002. This set of a basic information has become a useful means of assistance to foreign investors, an important vehicle of promotion of the South Moravian Region and an inspiration to other regions in the Czech Republic and abroad.

Throughout its existence, the content of the Survival Kit has evolved, from the provision of necessary basic information for companies that wished to locate their production and development centres in South Moravia to the existing form where the texts are oriented more towards employees of foreign companies and opportunities for partnership with research and development institutions of the South Moravian Region. This is an area where we see great potential, particularly due to the long-term focus of the South Moravian Region on innovation, intensified by newly built science and research centres of both regional and European relevance.

Given the high degree of specialisation of the texts, we work in the long term with a number of partners – professionals who guarantee that the individual texts and chapters provide reliable information and experience.

In conclusion, I would like to add that we welcome all comments on the content and structure of these texts. If you have any tips or ideas you would like to direct to us, we, and others who use the Survival Kit, will be very pleased to receive them.
