The resilience of the Czech economy is fading, and it is anticipated that the coming months will bring recessionary pressures. The reasons for pessimism are piling up: inflation will remain high, real wages will continue to decline, and industry will struggle with supply-chain issues. As a result, after 2% in 2022, growth will slow to a modest 1% in 2023.
