According to a poll by the Center for Public Opinion Research (CVVM), 49 per cent of Czechs see the economic situation as good, 36 per cent are undecided, and 15 per cent see it as doing poorly.
A more detailed analysis of the poll shows a strong correlation between expressed optimism and the person’s assessment of their own standard of living, satisfaction with their own life or increasing satisfaction with the political situation.
The European Commission’s spring forecast predicted Czech GDP growth will slow to 3.4 per cent this year and to 3.1 per cent in 2019. Last year, Czech economic growth reached 4.4 per cent.
