More than two thirds of financial directors expect that the Slovak economy will fail to grow strongly this year, according to a survey carried out by accountancy firm Deloitte among financial directors in 13 countries of central and south-eastern Europe. Of 677 respondents about 7 percent were Slovaks, the TASR newswire reported on May 28.

“This survey talks about a certain increase in scepticism in Slovakia, since in the past more financial directors believed in improvement,” said Zuzana Letková from Deloitte Slovensko, as quoted by TASR.

The survey also showed that up to 84 percent of respondents expect a rise in joblessness, with 70 percent saying the rise will be only mild and 14 percent predicting a significant increase in the number of people without jobs. Up to 41 percent of respondents expect a drop in the number of jobs as a result of changes to the Labour Code, TASR wrote.
