Country Report
This article presents an economic outlook for Poland for 2008. It is noted that as a result of strong consumer demand and the ongoing growth of gross fixed capital formation, the nation's economic performance will remain robust over the medium term, albeit moderating to a lower rate. This will result from a slight slowing in consumption in light of central bank rate hikes and a moderation in investment growth owing to base effects.
