Projections of average inflation for 2010 improve
The analysts cut their average inflation estimates for 2010 to 1.6% in October from the September level of 1.8%. The new figures were released by the National Bank of Slovakia (NBS).
The projection of analysts for GDP growth remains unchanged, however, at 4.1% in fixed prices for 2010. The Ministry of Finance is being a little more cautious, though, putting its figure at 4%, while the NBS has stuck its neck out with an estimate of 4.3%, while noting that next year the growth will slow down quite dramatically.
