Driven by a major increase in investment, the Polish economy has entered a phase of moderately faster growth, which is likely to extend into 2016. In the medium term some deterioration of external balances can be expected. The outcome of the elections to be held in 2015 is still uncertain. Should the present liberal-conservative coalition lose to the nationalist-populist opposition, the economic and social policy may take an unpredictable track.
