Economic research institute GKI's gauge of consumer confidence rose to -24.5 points in April from -32.6 points in the previous month, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Households' assessments of their own financial positions "strongly improved" in April and their outlook for the economy "improved by a similar degree", GKI said.
Fears of unemployment "eased significantly". More households planned to make big-ticket purchases, while the number who said they could make savings was little changed.
