Slovakia: Economy decelerates in Q3
November 15, 2016
In the third quarter, Slovakia's GDP grew 3.0% from the same period last year, according to preliminary data released by the Statistical Office of the Slovak Republic (SOSR) on 15 November. The print came in below the 3.7% increase in Q2 and undershot the 3.2% expansion that FocusEconomics analysts had expected last month.
Sequentially, the economy grew a seasonally-adjusted 0.7% in Q3, which was below the 0.9% rise in Q2. More detailed data will be released on 6 December.
