Poland's economy growth likely at 4.2 pct in 2019 - official

Having described the condition of the Polish economy as marked by stability, Development Minister Jadwiga Emilewicz said on Tuesday that Poland's economy likely expanded by 4.2 percent in 2019.

Poland's Central Statistical Office (GUS) will publish its initial GDP growth estimate on Wednesday.

"I think that it will be in line with our expectations, that is around 4.2 percent," Emilewicz told reporters, adding that it likely exceeded cautious estimates from the beginning of the year.

"This means that Poland has been in a moment of stable development," she said, admitting that the years of remarkable development are behind us. "At the moment, I would not be afraid to use the word 'stability' to describe the condition of the Polish economy," she noted.

According to Emilewicz, in order to maintain these good data in coming quarters, the Polish government will support Polish businessmen in their exports and foreign investments. A Polish-French future industry forum, to be held on Monday, is one of the economic fora planned by the government, she added.
