Data released by the Ministry of Finance has shown that in the first half of 2019 the amount of VAT paid in Poland increased by 6.8 percent since the same period last year.
Last year saw a 15-percent rise in the number of people donating, with over PLN 761 million going to charities.
Poland's public debt decreased by some PLN 3.4 billion (EUR 0.8 bln) during the course of 2017 compared to the previous year, Finance Minister Teresa Czerwinska told a public radio broadcaster on Friday.
"Tuesday's initial GDP growth estimate for 2017 is very positive information, though of course it is not a surprise," Finance Minister Teresa Czerwinska said on Tuesday.
