Summary:

This paper presents key findings of the Financial System Stability Assessment for the Slovak Republic, including Reports on the Observance of Standards and Codes on Monetary and Financial Policy Transparency, and Banking Supervision. Successful stabilization and an ambitious structural reform program since 1998 and the rehabilitation and privatization of the public banks in the Slovak Republic have produced a banking and financial sector that appears to be robust to a range of macroeconomic or financial sector shocks. Banking supervision is weak, but the National Bank of Slovakia has launched a medium-term program to strengthen it.
