In addition, the analysts expect consumer prices to grow at a faster rate. While the prices of goods and services rose by 1 percent in 2010, the increase should reach 3.8 percent this year. The Finance Ministry in its current prognosis expects growth in the national economy to slow to 3.3 percent. Slovakia’s central bank (the NBS) is slightly more pessimistic, expecting GDP to increase by only 3 percent this year.
