Trust in economy rising

ABOUT one-third of the public expects that Slovakia's economic situation will deteriorate in the next year. However, this is still more optimistic than last year when the government of former Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda carried out its reforms; at that time around half of the people polled expected the economy to worsen.

These results come from a poll conducted by the Public Opinion Institute of the Slovak Statistics Bureau and were published in the daily Sme.

Although roughly one-third of those polled expected improvements in the economy, only 20 percent of the respondents expected improvements in their personal economic situation by the end of the year.

According to sociologist Pavol Haulík, Slovaks tend to regard their own situation as far worse than it really is.
