The State Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic Ingrid Brocková today (May 21, 2020) visited the headquarters of the Chirana company in Stará Turá to discuss with the General Director Ján Brkal ways in which Department of Foreign Affairs could support the further development of the company and provide assistance to countries affected by pandemics.
 

 

“Chirana is a global leader in medical devices with proprietary development, manufacturing and the system of dual education,“ stressed the State Secretary. Sophisticated products from Slovakia are sought by customers all around the world. “At the same time, Chirana is a vital component in the strategic European medical infrastructure,“ reminded Ingrid Brocková.
 

 

General Director Ján Brkal confirmed, “During the pandemic, the demand for strategic stock, such as respirators grew enormously. Chirana has reorganized its production capacities and is conducting negotiations concerning new partnerships.“ However,  it has not left out solidarity. In the weeks to come, Chirana will equip Slovak hospitals with 300 lung ventilators and take part in humanitarian aid and development co-operation projects.
 
 

“The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic is appreciative of the company’s involvement in humanitarian aid projects and will be supportive of its future plans,“ said the State Secretary.
