November 15, 2016
Poland’s economy lost steam in the third quarter, according to a preliminary flash estimate released by the Central Statistical Office of Poland. The economy grew 2.5% over the same period of last year in Q3, which was below the 3.1% expansion in Q2 and marked the worst growth rate since Q3 2013. The result notably undershot market analysts’ expectations.
On a seasonally adjusted quarterly basis, the economy slowed to a 0.2% expansion in Q3 from a 0.8% increase in Q2. More detailed data including a breakdown of GDP components will be released on 30 November.
