Given the same number of working days in any calendar time did not play a role. The volume of new contracts and the Purchasing Managers' index, however, offers a less favorable outlook.

Industry continues to dominate this year and production cars. That in April increased by 8.3 percent. Automakers successfully seconded network industries (manufacturing and distribution of electricity, gas and heat), whose production rose by 12.3 percent, and engineering, with growth of 7.5 percent. In deep depression remains manufacture of computers and electronics, where production fell by 19 percent. Also continues to reduce production mills in April fell by 2.8 percent.

The volume of industrial production in April of this year grew by 2.2% compared with the previous month was also higher by 0.1%. Although in both cases the industry could do better, it is evident that the pace of industrial production will slow down significantly

The situation in industry in the coming months may still worsen. Besides, this signal leading indicators (PMI), both from the Czech Republic and from Germany, which is our key trading partner. A bad situation also shows stagnating number of new orders. Orders from long-term decline and domestic demand from abroad in recent months also slowed. Western countries are also faced with their own problems and thus the number of new foreign orders in the coming months may fall further.
