Current Account in Poland
Poland - Current AccountEconomic activity lost some momentum in Q3, according to an advanced estimate, with growth more than halving as the favorable base effect receded. Nevertheless, growth remained relatively strong, buoyed by solid household spending and exports. Turning to Q4, the economy appears set to end the year on a strong footing. In October, the manufacturing PMI inched up slightly on stronger growth in output and demand, while retail sales hit a five-month high, indicating continued growth in consumer spending. However, a rapid uptick in inflation could weigh on activity in the final stretch of the year, although a recent temporary tax cut on fuel, gas and electricity should help soften the impact on households. Meanwhile, tensions at the border with Belarus have the potential to escalate further, with the Belarussian government threatening to cut off Russian gas supplies to Europe if more EU sanctions are imposed.
