Slovakia could start meeting Eurozone inflation criterion this month

The Governor of the National Bank of Slovakia (NBS), Ivan Šramko, has said the development of consumer prices, according to methodology released by Slovakia's Statistics Office last week, suggests Slovakia might start meeting the Maastricht inflation criterion as early as this month.

"I suppose the harmonised index will come close to fulfilling the twelve-month average, which means that we will meet the inflation criterion by the end of the month. The figures we’ve received quite seriously support that," Šramko said after Wednesday's Cabinet session. SITA
