Poland’s GDP rises by 4.3pc in Q2

The Polish economy grew by 4.3 per cent on an annual basis in the second quarter of the year, official data showed yesterday. The EU’s largest ex-communist economy grew by 4.4 per cent in the first quarter of 2011. “We expect it to slow significantly in 2012 and 2013 to a below-consensus three per cent year-on-year as external headwinds build,” said Capital Economics.
