The Czech economy improved slightly in May but still lags behind the pre-crisis level of economic activity. Despite a month-on-month increase of more than 10%, industrial production is about a quarter lower. Of the industries, the automotive industry is currently the worst performing. Unfortunately, the fall in new orders by almost 35% in May does not give much optimism to the future. Currently civil engineering, whose production increased 1.2%, cannot complain about demand. In building construction, on the other hand, production decreased 11%. Despite weak demand from the domestic and foreign economies, however, unemployment in the Czech Republic remains low for the time being, at 3.7% in June, according to the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs. In our opinion, the main reason is the Antivirus programme.
