Poland Business Confidence August 2021


Poland: Business confidence improves in August, but remains in pessimistic territory

August 24, 2021

Business confidence came in at minus 0.9 in August, improving somewhat from minus 1.4 in July. That said, the index remained below the 0-threshold, separating pessimism from optimism among businesses.

August’s improvement was largely attributed to firms’ brighter assessment of the current economic situation. However, their appraisal of current orderbooks, production and their own financial situation grew more pessimistic. With regards to expectations, businesses turned less negative over future production as well as the future general economic situation, while expectations over orderbooks and employment turned bleaker compared to the prior month.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists expect fixed investment to expand 8.6% in 2021, which is up 0.8 percentage points from last month’s estimate. For 2022, the panel sees fixed investment growth at 6.9%.
