Confidence in economy returning as government relaxes measures

Confidence in the Czech economy rose in April to the highest level registered this year, the Czech Statistics Office reported on Monday. The business confidence indicator increased by 7.1 percentage points to 94.8, and the consumer confidence indicator increased by 9.9 percentage points to 93.9. The rise is attributed to the gradual easing of Covid measures and the projected reopening of shops and services on May 3.
