Poland's exports increased by 9.8 percent year on year and by 13.5 percent month on month in October 2018, Piotr Soroczyński, the chief economist with the Polish Chamber of Commerce (KiG), said on Wednesday.

"The currently available data on the condition of the real economy and opinions from KIG members allow us to estimate that exports amounted to EUR 20.075 bln in September 2018 and increased by 13.5 percent from September and by 9.8 percent from the value recorded 12 months earlier," Soroczyński explained.

The expert predicts Poland's exports will grow to EUR 213.8 bln in 2018, or by 5.9 percent. He estimates the figure will increase by 7.7 percent to EUR 230.3 bln in 2019.
