BMI Industry View

BMI View: Slovakia appears to be stabilising its economy and as such we have upwardly revised our forecasts for 2014. We forecast the construction growth in 2013 will return into positive figures at 0.8% y-o-y. For 2014, we expect this growth to be maintained - stronger growth being subdued as private investors wait to see how whether economic recovery will fully take hold.

A project bond, which will mature in 2039, will be issued in place of the original bank loan. The total worth of the project bond will be EUR1.25bn (US$1.72bn).

? Nuclear Future: Slovakia has held fast on its nuclear plans. In April 2012, the government pledged to speed up the new nuclear power plant at Bohunice and to decide upon proceeding early in 2013. The Slovak government in October 2013 said that it will hold talks with Russian company Rosatom about the firm's participation in the planned...
