    Slovak Republic: Making Growth Inclusive, delivered at the University of Economics

    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.

    APEC Finance Ministers Meeting: Session 1, Global & Regional Economic Outlook

    APEC economies are faring relatively well and China continues to be a locomotive for the world economy, even at a lower cruising speed. However, even those that are currently doing well cannot be completely sheltered from the storm. It is critical that we get the engine of global growth up and running once again.
