Country Report
This article reports on the higher than expected gross-domestic product growth that was posted by Czech Republic in fiscal 2004. The forecast pointed to steady growth as seen in fiscal 2003. However, during the fourth quarter of 2004, the year-on-year growth increased by 4.3 percent. Moreover, there were revisions made for the first to third-quarter growth figures. The 2004 economic growth was driven by improved performance in the external sector. But despite higher-than-expected growth, the unemployment remains a problem for Czech Republic. Data on unemployment and labor productivity suggest that employers are appointing existing workers rather than hiring new ones to meet increased orders.
