Mateusz Morawiecki conveyed on Facebook that Poland has a chance in the fourth quarter of this year to beat the economic growth before the coronavirus pandemic. ‘Not only will Poland not have a recession, but it will also experience a strong economic rebound – I think at least at the level of 4% GDP,’ declared Mateusz Morawiecki.

    At the same time, he stressed that not only would Poland not face a recession, but also it would score a strong economic rebound.  ‘I think at least around 4 per cent of GDP,’ he assessed. 


    ‘There is a chance that with the support of funds from the New Order program, economic growth in the next few years will be dynamic,’ added the Prime Minister.
