Purchasing power, regional disparities up

ALTHOUGH purchasing power per capita is growing in Slovakia, regional disparities are getting larger, according to a poll carried out by the GfK institute, the SITA news agency reported.

The survey shows that the average Slovak can spend Sk120,000 (€3,160) per year. The sum includes net income from working activities and social benefits, such as unemployment and maternity leave.

Slovakia's wealthiest area is Bratislava, followed by Považie, which includes Žilina, and Košice.

Purchasing power is lowest in the Orava region, Southern Central Slovakia and in remote districts in the East.

People in Kežmarok, Krupina, Vranov nad Topľou and Košice - okolie districts are reported as having the lowest average purchasing power.
