The Ministry of Finance hereby presents its regular Performance Evaluation of Primary Dealers in Czech Government Securities. The Primary Dealers are evaluated from Q2 2011 to Q1 2012. As from 1 October 2011, the evaluation methodology has changed significantly.
The update of the Convergence Programme for 2011-2015 presented here has for the second time in a row been prepared in accordance with a new timetable, the European Semester, and for the first time under the regime of new European legislative measures, the so-called "six-pack", fundamentally changing economic-political coordination. The objective of the European Semester is to deepen and strengthen multilateral budget surveillance as well as fiscal and structural policy coordination within the EU. National fiscal policies are therefore coordinated in the preparation phase of public budgets and their medium?term outlooks.
The 33rd Colloquium took place in April 2012. Its results are based on the forecasts of 15 institutions (MoF, MPO, MPSV, CNB, Ceska sporitelna, CSOB, Komercni banka, Liberalni institut, Economics Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Patria Finance, Generali PPF Asset Management, Raiffeisenbank, The Union of Czech Production Co-operatives, Confederation of Industry of the Czech Republic, UniCredit Bank). To make the survey more representative, the forecasts of the EC (February 2012 Interim Forecast) and the IMF (April 2012 World Economic Outlook) have been added.
We thank all participating institutions for their cooperation.
