Poland’s overall economic performance has been impressive over the last decade. Yet, important challenges remain ahead. Making the labour market work better and strengthening product market competition would boost economic prospects.
Poland’s economic performance has been impressive over the past 15 years, but further reforms are now needed to put the economy firmly back on track for stronger and sustainable growth, according to the OECD’s latest Economic Survey of Poland.
A broad agenda of reforms in four areas – labour markets, education, product markets and innovation – should strengthen Poland’s economy and allow it to continue its path of convergence towards the income levels of the more affluent OECD economies, said Angel Gurría during a seminar in Warsaw.
Poland has made considerable progress in transforming the structure of its economy, but unemployment is still far too high, and restrictive product market regulations continue to hinder economic activity. Reforms are needed for Poland to build on its strong track record and launch itself as an innovation–based economy, Mr Gurría said during the launch.
