Country Report
The article presents forecasts on Slovak Republic's economy and politics. A poll showing a continued popularity of Prime Minister R�bert Fico suggests that he and his party are on very solid ground, and that there is little reason to fear an early election, a factor that will provide him with substantial leverage in policy negotiations with his coalition partners. The economy is forecast to grow by an average of 5.2% annually through 2012.
