Poland - Current Account

The economy seemingly lost some steam in Q4 2019, following a notable slowdown in Q3 prompted by a lackluster industrial sector. Industrial activity weakened again in October-November, due to headwinds coming from the German economy, while diving business confidence throughout Q4 provides further clues of softening private-sector activity. The picture is more mixed when it comes to consumers, however. Somewhat softer but still healthy retail sales, solid wage growth and a tight labor market in the first two months of Q4 suggest household spending continued to support growth. Turning to 2020, a sizable minimum wage hike with effect from 1 January is set to benefit private consumption, although it risks hampering job creation. Meanwhile, at end-December, the government adopted a balanced 2020 budget, which, among other measures, includes a 10% excise tax hike on alcoholic drinks and tobacco, which could result in higher inflation.
