NBS predicts rise in national indebtedness

The National Bank of Slovakia (NBS) has predicted that Slovakia’s national debt will rise in the next four years from the current Sk11 billion ($245 million) to Sk12.4 billion, driven largely by private sector, non-financial institutions.

Slovakia’s current debt of $2,040 per capita compares to $2,125 in the Czech Republic, $2,501 in Hungary and $1,779 in Poland.
