Country Report
The article focuses on the economic conditions in Czech Republic. According to Business Monitor International Ltd. consumer price growth measured 1.7% year-on-year in August, as the run of sub 2% inflation continued into its eighth month despite the buoyant economy. The absence of inflationary pressures has enabled the National Bank to pursue a stable and expansionary monetary policy, which is a crucial factor in encouraging the investment necessary for sustainable growth in the medium term. A recovery in domestic demand over the forecast period is also anticipated, which should pull inflation close to 3% in 2006 and 2007.
