BANK analysts expect the National Bank of Slovakia (NBS) to increase key interest rates by 0.25 percent.
At a January meeting of the NBS Council, members had suggested that the rates might change, but in the end no increase occurred because some bank council members were absent.
According to Slovenská sporiteľňa analyst Mária Fehérová, January's rise in inflation, the weaker crown and the risk of its weakening further due to parliamentary elections will be the main factors in any decision, the Hospodárske noviny wrote.
