Slovak Republic

The high pace of growth in the Slovak Republic is mainly shaped by waves of foreign direct investments coming on stream. Activity will gradually decelerate from growth of over 10% in 2007 towards 6% in 2009, close to the economy’s estimated potential growth rate. Inflationary pressures will remain muted because of still very large labour reserves and rising labour force participation, as well as net immigration.
