Country Report
The article reports that macroeconomic conditions in Poland, including the abatement of temporary EU-related price pressures, are increasing the scope for an easing of monetary policy. The abatement of EU accession-related inflationary pressures seems to have strengthened the hand of the monetary authorities. Despite a change in their policy bias to neutral from easing, further monetary accommodation during the remainder of the year 2005 is expected. Nevertheless, recent fiscal policy performance has been encouraging.
