GDP growth will be lower than one percent, experts say

Analysts of commercial banks continue to reduce the estimates for Slovakia’s gross domestic product GDP growth for this year, the Sme daily wrote in its Tuesday, March 26, issue. According to the March round of a NBS central bank’s poll, bank analysts assess 2013 GDP growth at 0.9 percent. The February and January estimates were higher by 0.1 percentage points and 0.2 percentage points, respectively. Last year at this time, GDP growth was one-time higher than the current rate, Sme concluded.
