Pros and cons of Polish economy according to the OECD report
The OECD360 – Polska2015 report concentrates on the following subjects: education, employment, so-called green growth, regional perspectives, agriculture, growth, financial crisis and its consequences. “Two years ago, Poland was the only OECD country which reported growth,” Adam Orzechowski from the Economy Ministry, told Polish Radio. “We performed as a leader who did not quite know how it happened. Which mechanisms, in addition to the entrepreneurship of Poles, led to this situation,” Orzechowski said.
An asset of the Polish economy is its social mobility, Polish economy experts agreed. “Today, the trump card is the mobility of Polish society,” said Professor Katarzyna Żukrowska from the Warsaw School of Economics. However, Poland’s lack of confidence, poorly developed infrastructure, high taxes on goods and services are a disadvantage, Żukrowska said. “These decide on competitiveness, but we did not think that much ahead,” Żukrowska added. “Poland has [human capital] in a quantitative sense, and now we have to take care of its quality, and respectively invest in it,” Katarzyna Żukrowska explained.
