Ivan Šramko, the governor of Slovakia's central bank, has stated he is happy with the final crown-euro conversion rate, which was set at 30.126 SKK/EUR by European Union finance ministers on July 8.
Šramko said the rate reflects the Slovak economy’s extremely robust development since entering the ERM-2 exchange rate mechanism. It should also help to curb inflationary pressures in the medium term, he said.
"The rate partly takes the most recent history into account and partly creates good conditions for both the country's sustainable economic growth and favourable price developments," Šramko concluded. TASR
