In the past year, Slovakia has made considerable progress in recovering its economic dynamism. GDP is set to grow by 2.6% in 2014 and 2.8% in 2015, double the rate of 2013. We estimate that the rate of economic expansion will increase further in 2016 to reach 3.4%. Slovakia’s real GDP per capita is now further ahead of pre-crisis levels – than in any other Eurozone country.
Slovakia’s growth performance has improved, but there is still a lot to get growth back to pre-crisis rates, and to ensure all regions and segments of society can benefit. The country is still facing worryingly high levels of unemployment, which peaked at 14% in 2013. Two-thirds of those without jobs were affected by long-term unemployment.
Economic recovery is picking up in the Slovak Republic, but regional disparities and high unemployment must be addressed to ensure balanced inclusive growth over the long-term, according to the latest OECD Economic Survey of the Slovak Republic.
OECD's 2014 Economic Survey of the Slovak Republic examines recent economic developments, policies and prospects. Special chapters cover reforming the public sector and spurring growth in lagging regions.
