This section offers update on issues relating to political and economic risks in Poland as of May 2005. Ahead of his planned resignation in early May 2005, Polish Prime Minister Marke Belka has hinted of an affiliation with a new centrist pro-European party. The faction is believed to have the support of President Aleksander Kwasniewski. The Polish government is planning to repay just under half of a planned EUR 12.3 billion of its Paris Club debt. Deputy Finance Minister Wieslaw Szcuka has already confirmed that ten of the country's 16 Paris Club creditor nations had either verbally agreed or indicated a willingness to agree, to the government's proposal to repay EUR 5.92 billion of arrears. Bryggerigruppen, an alcoholic beverages producer in Denmark, is planning to acquire the assets of Polskie Brok-Strzelec. This plan is subject for approval from competition authorities in Poland.
