Czech Republic economy performed betterat the end of 2020
According to a 2021 OECD’s Economic Forecast, after contracting sharply in 2020, GDP in the Czech Republic is projected to recover by 3.3% and 4.9% in 2021 and 2022, respectively. The country has experienced one of the highest infection and death rates in the OECD area, but the recovery is projected to gather pace in the second half of 2021, once the population is more extensively vaccinated, triggering a rebound in services and boosting private consumption and investment. Inflation has picked up due to rising food and fuel prices. It is expected to remain between 2 and 3% in the second half of 2021. In 2022, unemployment will start to decline ang the government will advance reforms to boost the recovery. The Czech Republic was ranking #41 in the World Bank’s 2019 Ease of Doing Business index (Sources: ING, World Bank, and OECD).
