Poland has emerged as a dynamic market over the past 25 years and has become a major actor within Europe, being the sixth-largest economy in the EU. The Polish economy performed well during the 2014-17 period, with the real GDP growth rate generally exceeding 3%. In 2017, Poland’s economy expanded 4.6% (OECD), its fastest pace since 2011 and above IMF estimates. Growth was led by domestic demand and government social spending. In fact, household consumption expenditure – which accounts for 61% of GDP – recorded its strongest growth in nearly a decade (4.7%). A stronger and more dynamic activity in Poland’s neighbours and in the EU have also supported such growth. The World Bank expects Poland’s economy to grow by 4% in 2018, followed by 3.5% in 2019.
