Central bank sees room for growth in Polish financial system

The size and structure of the Polish financial system show that there is room for its further growth, the National Bank of Poland (NBP) wrote on Thursday in a presentation accompanying its report on the development of the financial system in 2017.

The development, which will be beneficial for Poland's economic growth, should have a moderate rate and take place along with the growing significance of financial markets, the NBP added.

The financial system's credit portfolio could benefit from an increased share of corporate loans, the central bank also observed.

"It is necessary to increase the importance of the capital market as a source of funding for business activity and growth," the NBP added.
