The Hospodárske noviny daily quoted the prognosis on Wednesday, November 14, as saying that Slovakia should start gradually catching up with western countries as soon as this year.

Slovakia should produce €600 more per capita than Portugal – making it the first “old” EU member Slovakia catches up with, the daily wrote, adding that by 2030, Slovakia should be better off than Italy (and Israel) and is expected to beat even France by 2060. In almost 50 years, Norway should become the most economically developed country, followed by the US, Switzerland and Australia.
