We are amongst the largest companies not only in the Moravian–Silesian Region but also in the Czech Republic. We are one of the major employers in the country and one of the biggest tax payers. As a steel producer, we are also inherently an emitter of air emissions. Consequently, the Company is permanently scrutinized by many state bodies. ArcelorMittal Ostrava seeks to maintain a fair and honest relationship based on mutual respect with each one of them.
We cooperate closely with the Government of the Czech Republic, individual ministries and their bodies, officials of the Moravian–Silesian Region, neighbouring towns and municipalities. Of course, the closest relations are maintained with local bodies. Meetings of the Company representatives with the representatives of these institutions are held throughout the year in order to tackle current issues related to the Company’s production.
In addition to this, we organize official meetings with the representatives of the neighbouring municipalities twice a year, where the mayors and council members are informed of all important events taking place in the Company. Prospective investment plans are discussed as well.
We also regularly discuss with the representatives of the neighbouring municipalities the prospective development of the region and the ways the Company can contribute to it.
