Market insight Poland

Poland ranks among the poorest countries in the European Union in terms of Gross Domestic Product per capita in purchasing power parity. Hence, the convergence potential is still relatively huge. The Polish economy should continue to leave the Euro zone galloping behind in the coming years. Attractive labour costs, size of the market, good geographical location and stable (market oriented) government should be conductive to attracting foreign investors. However, lagging fiscal consolidation and widened fiscal deficit represent a growing risk for the Polish economy and financial markets.
