The Polish economy has proved surprisingly resilient so far. But growth will slow in the second half of 2022 and beyond. Rising interest rates are affecting consumption and investment, while inflation is eroding the real value of current wages. If the full disbursement of EU recovery funds continues to be delayed, public spending may become less lavish than before. To cap it all, essential imports such as energy and metals may be in short supply, or else become prohibitively expensive.
