OSTRAVA HAS AGAIN BEEN RANKED THE BEST PLACE IN THE REGION TO DO BUSINESS
Ostrava has successfully defended its position in the national comparative survey “Cities for Business”. The survey brings an annual evaluation of 205 cities and towns plus the individual municipal districts of Prague.
Ostrava achieved an excellent ranking within the Moravian-Silesian Region for the business-friendliness of its public authorities; the total hours during which various authorities are open for business is the highest in the Region. Businesses also appreciate the City of Ostrava’s excellent and easy-to-navigate website. Ostrava has succeeded in exploiting its strategic location and leveraging the advantages offered by its dense and high-quality transportation infrastructure – which continues to improve year on year. For example, Ostrava has the second-highest number of electric vehicle charging stations in the Czech Republic (after Mladá Boleslav).
Ostrava’s business environment is continually developing and improving – a trend that is reflected in the high number of corporations registered in the city relative to its total population. The City of Ostrava also invests substantial sums in improving its housing stock as well as in culture.
