5/3/2014 - The OECD’s latest Economic Survey of Poland, to be published on Monday 10 March 2014, assesses the country’s impressive economic performance over the past decade, as well as the challenges posed by the abrupt slowdown that began in 2012. The Survey focuses on reforms that can make the labour market work better, strengthen competition in product markets, help overcome strong demographic headwinds and boost both short and longer-term economic prospects.
OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría will present the Survey during a news conference with Poland's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy Janusz Piechociński, at 9:45 a.m. (8:45 a.m. CET) at the Ministry of Economy (Pl. Trzech Krzyzy, 00-507, Warsaw).
The Survey will be available to registered journalists on the OECD's password-protected website at 9:45 a.m. (8:45 a.m. CET) for immediate release.
An Overview with the main conclusions will be freely accessible in pdf format on the OECD’s web site at http://www.oecd.org/eco/surveys/economic-survey-poland.htm. You are invited to include this Internet link in reports on the Survey.
