Facts About Poland And Poland's Economy
The Economy of Poland is the second largest economy in Central Europe, sixth-largest in the EU and the largest among the ex-communist members of the European Union. Before the late-2000s recession its economy grew a yearly growth rate of over 6.0 %. According to the Central Statistical Office of Poland, in 2010 the Polish economic growth rate was 3.9%, which was one of the best results in Europe. In Q1 2014 its economy grew by 3.4% and is expected to grow by 3.4% in 2014, 3.7% in 2015 and 3.9% in 2016.
Since the global recession of 2009, Poland's GDP has continued to grow. In 2009, at the high point of the crisis, the GDP for the European Union as a whole dropped by 4.5% while the Polish GDP increased by 1.6%. As of November 2013, the size of the EU's economy remains below the pre-crisis level, while Poland's economy increased by a cumulative 16%. The major reasons for its success appear to be a large internal market (in terms of population is sixth in EU) and a business friendly political climate. The economic reforms implemented after the fall of communism in the 1990s have also played a role; between 1989 and 2007 Poland's economy grew by 177%, faster than other countries in Eastern and Central Europe, while at the same time millions were left without work.
Another factor which allowed the Polish economy to avoid the financial crisis was its low level of public debt, at about 50% of GDP, below the EU average (around 90%). Strict financial regulation also helped to keep household and corporate debt low. Furthermore, unlike many other European countries, Poland did not implement austerity but rather boosted domestic demand through Keynesian policy of tax cut, and foreign-assistance funded public spending. An additional reason for its success lay in the fact that Poland is outside the Euro zone. The depreciation of the currency, the złoty, increased international competitiveness and boosted the value of Poland's exports (in złoty).
However, the economic fluctuations of the business cycle did have an impact on Poland's unemployment rate, which by early 2013 reached almost 11%. This level was still below European average and has begun falling subsequently. As of February 2014, Poland's unemployment rate stood at 14% according to Polish Central Statistics Office and 9.7% according to Eurostat which stated European average is 10.6% (and 11.9% for the EU18). Unemployment remains a permanent and one of the most important problems of Poland and has been growing for years and Polish unemployment remains among the highest in the EU. Warsaw Business Journal remarked that the fact that despite the growing GDP Polish unemployment remained "stubbornly high" casts shadow over claims of economic success; in 2012 the unemployment rate in Poland was 13.3 percent, higher than it was in 1991 (12.2) after capitalist reforms were initiated. Entrenched structural unemployment is especially problematic in Poland, with 46% of the jobless being long term unemployed. Lack of employment opportunities, low wages and poverty have led to flight of over 2 million Poles to Western EU in search of a better life since 2004. With most being in the young demographic and not intending to return to Poland, this is expected to cause long term problems for the Polish economy. According to professor Gavin Rae of the Kozminski University, most of the Polish recent economic growth was based on the ability to leverage funding from EU.
