Up to 53.9 percent of people recently surveyed believe that Slovakia is not going in the right direction, while about 27 percent think that the country has come to a standstill, according to the online survey conducted by VisioStart agency. The survey was conducted between November 1 and November 11 and attracted 1,600 respondents, the TASR newswire reported.
While only 10.8 percent of people believe that Slovakia is developing in the right direction, as many as 60.7 percent foresee a worsening economic situation in Slovakia. About 11.3 percent of the respondents predict that the economic conditions in the country will improve in following years.
The survey also found that 64.1 percent of those participating in the survey believe that Europe will go through worse economic times and only 11.3 percent are optimistic and believe in the opposite.
More optimism was shown when it came to the expected economic state of Slovak households. While 44.4 percent of the respondents expect this to worsen, 31.9 percent think it will stay the same and 15.7 percent foresee better times.
