Country Report
The article presents information related to the political and economic conditions of Poland. According to Business Monitor International Ltd. despite the surprise election victory of the Law and Justice (PiS) party in parliamentary elections on September 25, 2005 and attendant fears over greater euroscepticism in a PiS-PO coalition government, the zloty has remained stable against the euro in the PLN3.89-3.90/EUR range. This suggests that political risks associated with the appointment of a center-right administration are already included in the currency's valuation. Data on real GDP growth, industrial production, trade balance and current account for the years 2003 and 2004 is also given.
