Report description

The Czech economy was severely impacted by the global downturn, prompting the government to use fiscal consolidation to augment public finances and improve the business environment. Healthcare and pension reforms were introduced to ensure fiscal sustainability. The economy grew by 2.5% in 2010 and 1.8% in 2011, but the recovery of 2010–11 subsided in 2012, and the economy contracted by 1.2%.
