Public Debt in Slovakia

Slovakia Public Debt | Economic News & Forecasts

Slovakia - Public Debt

GDP growth improved in the first quarter of this year. The acceleration was spearheaded by stronger domestic demand: Eased Covid-19 restrictions pushed up average annual retail sales growth to 16.0% in Q1 from 2.4% in Q4, pointing to healthier private spending growth. Less positively, the external sector weakened in Q1, weighing on the overall result. Turning to Q2, available data paints a mixed picture. Both business and consumer confidence improved in April, suggesting that private sector was broadly resilient to a slowing global economy and supply bottlenecks arising from the war in Ukraine and lockdowns in China. That said, inflation shot up to a record high in April and will likely remain at all-time highs in the coming months, in turn hurting household consumption in Q2. Meanwhile, on 23 May, S&P Global Ratings slashed the outlook of Slovakia’s A+ rating from stable to negative.
