Slovak GDP is forecast to increase by 3.6% in 2019, with growth boosted by exports from the new Jaguar Land Rover plant. As support from automotive expansion vanishes, growth will gradually decelerate in the next two years. Risks are rising – both domestically and globally – due to weak household consumption and increasing protectionist risks for the automotive industry.
