The Polish economy is struggling with high inflation, negative confidence effects related to the war in Ukraine, and slowing demand in key trading partners. The situation is even more multifaceted because of falling consumption and rising inflation despite the decline of the CPI in some categories. The mid-April IMF report and Europe and Central Asia Economic Update by World Bank projected Poland's GDP growth rate at 0.3% (IMF) and 0.7% (WB).
