    Poland Takes the Lead in Q3 2023 GDP Growth Among OECD Nations

    Poland has achieved the most substantial GDP growth in the third quarter of this year within the OECD countries, solidifying its position at the forefront.

    According to initial projections, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the OECD increased by 0.5% in Q3 2023, maintaining a consistent pace with the previous quarter.

    G7 countries witnessed a growth of 0.6% in Q3, showcasing an improvement from the 0.4% recorded in the second quarter. This positive shift is credited to a significant acceleration in the GDP growth of the United States, reaching 1.2% in Q3 compared to 0.5% in Q2. Other G7 nations experienced either zero, nearly zero, or negative growth in the third quarter, with Canada, Italy, and the United Kingdom seeing stagnant growth, France with a 0.1% increase, and Japan and Germany with negative growth at -0.5% and -0.1%, respectively.

    Among other OECD countries, Poland and Costa Rica stood out with the most robust GDP growth in Q3, registering 1.4% and 1.3%, respectively. Hungary and Mexico followed closely with growth rates of 0.9% each. Conversely, Ireland saw the most significant GDP decline at -1.8%, trailed by Finland at -0.9%.

    The GDP in the OECD surpassed pre-pandemic levels by 6.0% in the third quarter of 2023.
