ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the problem of high rate of unemployment in Slovakia. Despite a generally impressive record on economic management and structural reform, unemployment remains a key economic and political challenge for the government of Slovakia. Supply- and demand-side reforms to the labor market have eased the situation somewhat, but further measures are likely to be necessary to reduce unemployment to acceptable levels. The authorities cannot rely simply on a combination of the reforms already undertaken and continued rapid economic growth to reduce unemployment to acceptable levels.
