The Slovak crown continues to strengthen, touching a new record 41.09 against its euro reference currency on Monday, and holding at around 41.5 to the dollar, a strength last seen in October 1999.
A wave of crown purchases by mainly foreign banks was started by the new government’s announced reform plans, which were received as a promise of renewed Slovak economic health by international markets.
