The article presents information and data on the economic conditions of Slovakia. According to Business Monitor International Ltd. inflation is set to rise sharply over the final months of this year from a record low of 2.0% in July-August, after state gas monopoly SPP was granted permission to hike household gas prices by a steep 20.3% as of October. The National Bank of Slovakia has finally accepted that the measure places this year's 3.0-4.0% end-year inflation target in jeopardy, forecasting a 4.3% rate due to the gas price hike itself and a subsequent rise in heating prices. Statistics on population, real GDP growth, industrial output, exchange rate, current account, foreign reserves and external debt is also given for the years 2003 and 2004.
