Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has said at an economic conference in Berlin that his country has succeeded in delivering economic stability while pursuing social programmes.
At the meeting organized by the Axel Springer media group on Wednesday, Morawiecki said: "Around us the times are not as certain as a few years ago, but we are showing that the Polish economy can deftly navigate between reefs and international economic challenges.”
Morawiecki told journalists: "Thanks to Polish entrepreneurs and employees we are being talked about by global, German and European business as a country that perfectly melds social goals with development goals and at the same time is able to ensure fiscal and macroeconomic stability.”
The Polish economy grew 3.9 percent in the third quarter of 2019, according to the country’s Central Statistical Office. Morawiecki last year hailed Poland's GDP expansion figures, saying they ranked the country "among European and global leaders in terms of economic growth."
Poland's government last month approved a balanced budget for 2020 that expects the economy to grow 3.7 percent, with inflation targeted at 2.5 percent.
The Berlin conference on Wednesday was a platform to discuss the future economic and political challenges faced by Germany and Europe. This year, these include Brexit and trade wars, the race to develop artificial intelligence, and the challenges of regulation, according to Axel Springer.
