    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.
