After a moderately subdued April, we can expect to again see high export figures in May. The foreign trade balance will be helped by the better than expected economic growth in Germany and the rapid growth in demand in the Slovak economy. On the other hand, domestic demand is acting in a contradictory fashion. Domestic consumer demand growth and investment activities are pushing up the demand for imports. Also, the balance of trade will benefit from the prices being paid in foreign trade. This improvement in the terms of trading are expected to visually upgrade the balance of trade by several billion. In May, we are expecting the foreign trade surplus to reach CZK 6bn.
