Prices of selected goods and services, monitored by the Slovak Statistics Office in connection with the euro switchover, have remained unchanged in the first ten days of May following a moderate growth in the previous period, the SITA newswire reported.

In the last ten days of April average prices of 196 most frequently purchased goods and services rose by 0.3 percent but they remained unchanged over the following ten days. Prices in these periods were largely influenced by an increase in prices of vegetables, including potatoes by 6.1 percent both in crowns and in euros.

Similarly, prices of goods included in the category of food products not classified elsewhere increased 1.6 percent in both currencies. On the other hand, prices of oils and fats declined 2.6 percent in both currencies and prices of fruits fell 4.6 percent also in both currencies. SITA
