According to the data from the State Statistical Office, the managers of the business entities assessed that the business situation in the first quarter of 2011 is more satisfactory compared to the previous one, as well as compared to the same quarter of the previous year. The assessment of the financial situation of their business entities is that it is getting better compared to the fourth quarter of 2010, as well as compared to the same quarter of the previous year.

The expectations for the number of employees for the next period are unfavorable, and the assessment of the present orders is considered more satisfactory compared to the previous quarter. The quantity and quality of the business entities' mechanization and equipment are unsatisfactory and below the normal level, but there is a tendency toward improvement.
