Crown at its strongest

THE SLOVAK crown appreciated to a new high of Sk39.670 against the euro on July 8, continuing a string of record increases that the Slovak central bank has described as "too steep", the state run news agency TASR wrote.

The central bank has therefore decided for direct intervention. "We do not see why this [appreciation] should continue," said Elena Kohútiková, vice-governor of the bank.
