Country Report
This article reports on the risk factors of Poland as of March 1, 2005. Poland's governing Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) has announced its intention to hold this year's general elections in the Autumn instead of the Spring, in a move that may prove to be a harbinger of further political instability in the country. The country's short-term political rating fell to 60.0 in February, from 61.0, as confidence in the minority SLD-led government remains low. Despite the uncertain outlook for fiscal policy, the country's short-term economic rating stayed at 53.0 in February. The country's business environment rating fell by 0.1 to 60.9 in February, in light of the change in the political rating.
