The transformation of the Slovak economy went through stages of varying quality over time. The current second stage of depoliticization of economy is rounding up along with reforms undertaken typically not only by transforming countries but also by economically more advanced states. Having analyzed the criteria for a completed transformation process one may conclude that despite a substantial shift towards the standard market economy model the transformation has not been entirely completed by the time Slovakia became a member of the European Union. The Slovak economy, on the other hand, has already managed a critical mass of changes and would be considered by the economically more advanced countries as a peer in the economic area. Notwithstanding this advance the authors of the economic policy need address the convergence task along with the removal of the remaining transformation deformities
