Summary:

Poland’s economic growth remains robust, despite some weakening this year, and deflation has dissipated. The external buffers have increased, and the current account is close to balance. However, external risks remain elevated, with the key risks including a faster-than-expected pace of monetary policy normalization in the U.S., possible dislocations in emerging markets leading to bouts of financial market volatility, as well as a possible banking sector stress and growth slowdown in the euro area. The upcoming Brexit negotiations and Europe's heavy election calendar add to uncertainties.
