Poland is placed high among the most successful transition economies owing to its strong macroeconomic and structural policies.

They welcomed the policymakers' focus on ensuring progress toward membership in the European Union accession. They agreed that the country's statistical base is adequate for surveillance, and encouraged the authorities to improve the quality of macroeconomic data.
