In Poland, the robust GDP growth is expected to continue. Growth will be driven primarily by do-mestic demand – in terms of both consumption and investment. Improvements in industrial labour productivity will help to contain the impact of any eventual currency appreciation. Trade develop-ments will play a secondary – but increasingly negative – role. Whereas fiscal consolidation will proceed at a fairly gradual pace, monetary policy seems determined to combat inflation more vigorously than elsewhere in the EU.
