Poland: Retail sales growth accelerates in February
March 17, 2016
In February, retail sales rose 3.9% over the same month last year, which was above January’s 0.9% increase. The reading overshot the 3.3% rise that markets analysts had expected. The acceleration came on the back of better performance compared to last month in seven of the nine categories that comprise the index, with motor vehicles and parts improving notably.
Annual average growth in retail sales rose from January’s 1.4% to 1.8% in February, which marked an almost-one-year high.
