Erste Group CEO Andreas Treichl’s comments about Central and Eastern Europe:
“The 2013 economic picture is showing an improvement: apart from Slovakia,  all expectations are for a better performance in 2013 for all the countries in the region. As a result, in the next few quarters we are confident that we can expect stronger GDP growth and this has made us more positive that in the second half of this year we can expect an improvement in our region. Therefore, we have not made any changes to our year end assumptions: we are still assured that when compared to 2012, we will be able to achieve healthier operating results.”
