The current moderate and broad-based growth has yet to eliminate the excessive unemployment and put a stop to deflationary tendencies. The recent elections are unlikely to change Poland’s economic trajectory over the biennium 2016-2017. Continuing moderate growth (at a rate in excess of 3%) will bring about gradual improvements without giving rise to major internal or external imbalances.
