Slovakia: Economy accelerates slightly in Q4
February 14, 2017
In the fourth quarter, GDP in Slovakia grew 3.1% from the same period of the previous year, according to preliminary data released by the Statistical Office of the Slovak Republic (SOSR) on 14 February. The print came in slightly above the 3.0% increase in Q3 and just overshot the 3.0% expansion that FocusEconomics analysts had expected last month.
Sequentially, the economy grew a seasonally-adjusted 0.8% in Q4, which followed the 0.7% rise in Q3. More detailed data will be released on 6 March.
