Executive summary

Compared to other OECD countries, the Czech Republic emerged relatively strong from the global financial crisis but growth remains fragile. Long-term unemployment is persistently higher than the EU average and productivity remains weak affecting overall competitiveness. Creating quality jobs and skills is an important priority to continue growing the economy. As articulated in the National Reform Programme, the government is focused on maintaining stability, increasing national competitiveness, and driving up employment.
