Having been formed following the dissolution of Czechoslovakia in 1993, Slovakia is one of the world’s youngest countries (it celebrated its 23rd birthday on January 1st  this year) but has come a long way in a short space of time and is now a eurozone  country with a population of over 5 million people.

It remains a close partner of the Czech Republic, as well as Poland and Hungary, as members of the Visegrad Group, set up to promote cooperation and European integration.

A small island sat in the north Caribbean Sea, Puerto Rico is an “unincorporated territory” of the United States, with little by way of natural resources that would be of any economic value. Its manufacturing industry is largely US-owned companies, specialising in pharmaceuticals, electronics, textiles, petrochemicals, processed foods, clothing and textiles, and its economy relies mainly on federal aid from the US government.

Puerto Rico’s trade and commerce continues to be subject to US congressional authority. Most of its imports are to the US, with small amounts going to the Netherlands, Dominican Republic and the UK – so there is a business opportunity there for UK companies.

If you think your company could do business in the Caribbean, you’ll need a cost-effective and reliable international teleconference provider to help you keep in touch with clients from your UK base – here’s how to set up a conference call between UK and Puerto Rico in just a few simple steps…
