map Slovakia
By the end of 2021, Slovakia’s GDP had still not fully recovered from the COVID-19 pandemic, showing annual growth of only 3%. Growth forecasts have been revised substantially downwards, reflecting the negative impact of the Russian war in Ukraine. Still, the inflow of EU funds should provide some growth impetus at a time of rising risk.
