OECD: Slovak economy better than neighbours

The Slovak economy is set to grow faster than others in the region and can expect high inward investment after entry to the European Union, according to an OECD report.

"We support the planned budget policies in Slovakia. The intention to carry out ambitious reforms, which should result in growth of economic output and overtaking other central European states, is commendable," according to the report.

The report also praised budgetary discipline in the run-up to last year's general elections.
