Even though the global capacity of car production had been set for “inflated” global demand, an analysis by Unicredit Bank states that Slovakia should not experience further production cuts. The bank reported that car-making capacity should remain in Slovakia and that any difference between global demand for automobiles and supply will be resolved by companies reducing production in more expensive countries and in older assembly plants.
