To a lesser extent, the employment outlook also improved (11 from 9), mainly in manufacturing of wood & paper products and machinery & equipment. On the price front, manufacturers expected selling prices to rise faster (11 from 10) but reported a slight contraction in both order books (0 from 1) and exports (3 from 4). source: Statistical Office of the Slovak Republic
