BUSINESS BRIEFS

Crown falls, bounces back

THE SLOVAK crown, along with other central European currencies, took a tumble on January 22, falling 70 basis points to 42.43 against its euro reference currency, the weakest it has been since September 2002.

By January 31, however, the crown had recovered to 41.75, and was predicted again to approach record strengths on speculative buying by foreign banks.
