The Slovak central bank’s (NBS) prognosis on inflation for the coming years will probably be slightly higher, Vice Governor Viliam Ostrožlík said at a presentation on July 17.

"In two weeks, the next quarterly NBS prognosis will be available and will present detailed information on the NBS's outlook for inflation development. Inflation will be slightly higher, but this is mostly influenced by the development of prices on world markets and mainly due to the price of energy and food," he said. SITA
