Poland

Under the impact of policies that seek to imbue the national economic and social life with ‘law and order’, Poland’s economy clearly underperformed in 2016. This was epitomised by a dramatic decline in gross fixed capital formation. But the economy is still in pretty good shape. It is expected to grow at a respectable pace, provided the institutional changes imposed consider more carefully the needs of the business sector and the limits to what can be achieved through administrative regulation.
