In its latest World Economic Outlook report, the IMF predicts Polish GDP will grow 3.8% in 2017 and 3.3% in 2018.

In April, the IMF forecast 3.4% GDP growth for Poland in 2017 and 3.2% the year after.

The World Economic Outlook revised downward its average annual inflation forecast for Poland this year to 1.9% from an April projection of 2.3%. The forecast for 2018 remains unchanged at 2.3%.

International rating agency Fitch recently revised upwards its forecast for the Polish economy to 4% growth this year, up from a July projection of 3.3%.

Meanwhile, in early September, the Moody’s agency strongly upgraded Poland’s 2017 GDP forecast to 4.3% from an earlier projection of 3.2%.
