Country Report
The article presents information about the political and economic conditions in Slovakia. Slovakia's short-term political rating dropped to 75 in June 2005 from 77 due to the heightened coalition tensions. The opposition is likely to keep up the pressure on the ruling four-party coalition in light of renewed tensions within the group. Although French and Dutch voters' emphatic rejection of the new EU constitution could dampen the bloc's appetite for further rounds of enlargement, there is not expected to be any major impact on existing newcomers' plans to integrate further by adopting the euro. Wage growth has been boosted by high inflation expectations after 2003-2004's price spike.
