Poland Economic Forecast

Poland Economic Outlook

May 9, 2017

Poland’s economy is gathering steam. A revival in investment and construction activity is supporting momentum and recent economic indicators are pointing up. Business confidence came in at the highest level in seven years in April and the manufacturing PMI pointed to improving business conditions. Moreover, accommodative fiscal and monetary policies are adding impetus to consumption and retail sales expanded nearly 10% in March. The upturn in data comes after GDP slowed in H2 2016 as plunging investment curtailed economic activity. Looking forward, while improved conditions in the labor market will continue to fuel household spending, growth is expected to wane in H2 as the effects of the Family 500+ child care benefit scheme fade.
