Summary/Abstract: Slovakia has a highly open economy, meaning that its economy is strongly affected by global economic developments and the globalisation. These processes very much shape Slovakia’s foreign economic policy. For these reasons the most important goal of the economic diplomacy is capacity to identify the main trends in global economic development and apply them to domestic economic policy. Economic diplomacy thus accelerates the adaptation of the Slovak economy (by promoting desirable structural changes, encouraging the inflow of foreign investments and technologies, supporting small and medium businesses, etc.) and at the same time helps Slovak companies to penetrate foreign markets.
