Poland – strong economic growth, but questionable policies may hurt its potential
  • Poland’s economy proved to be resilient to negative external shocks last year. Strong domestic demand, an expansionary fiscal policy, and stronger growth in export markets should further fuel GDP growth.

  • However, the newly elected right-wing government has embarked on questionable policies, which risk weakening fiscal discipline and potential growth.

  • Lithuania, which has the strongest economic ties with Poland, could be affected the most, while the effect on Estonia would be minimal.
