The adverse impact of the Russian war in Ukraine, high inflation and the energy crisis are all taking their toll on the Slovak economy. We estimate real GDP growth of 1.8% in 2022, driven by private consumption. While household consumption will fall back in the face of soaring inflation, the inflow of EU funds could provide some growth impetus in 2023 and beyond.
