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.
