Construction output again down

January construction output was Sk4.2 billion, down Sk2 billion from the month before and 4.2 per cent lower than in January 2001. The Statistical Office noted a 10 per cent rise in Czech construction, however, saying some Slovak firms such as Doprastav had won contracts there, thus the decline in the Slovak numbers. Slovak construction firms have been hurt by low state orders and the low purchasing power of the domestic market.
