Market insight Slovakia

Slovakia has one of the most open economies in the EU with very competitive labour costs and an attractive tax regime. With the exception of 2009, the Slovakian economy has experienced the fastest growth in the region in the past couple of years and enjoyed a strong FDI inflow especially into the automotive and electronics sector. The fixed income market has become less volatile compared to that of neighbouring countries recently thanks to its joining the Euro Area in January 2009.
