Slovakia's gross domestic product (GDP) advanced 1.3% year-on-year in the third quarter of 2021, matching preliminary estimates, and following a 9.6% growth in the previous three-month period, data from the Slovak Statistical Office (SÚSR) showed on Friday.
It was the third consecutive quarter of economic expansion, but at a weaker pace, amid fading low-base effects from the pandemic shock last year.
On a seasonally adjusted quarterly basis, the economy rose 0.4%, following a 1.9% increase in the second quarter of 2021.
The economy remains 0.7% below the pre-pandemic level.
