  2. 2. 2 GDP  Poland went smoothly trough the first phase of the global/European economic slowdown but then …  Consumption – „0” contribution to GDP growth recently (deteriorating situation on labour market, postponed private consumption).  Investments – dragging on, Euro 2012 hangover, public finance tensions.  Counter cyclical character of net export, driven by import – weakness of domestic consumption. 0,8 -6 -4 -2 0 2 4 6 8 10 12 Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q1 Q2 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 Individual final consumption expenditure Public final consumption expenditure Gross fixed capital formation Changes in inventories Net exports GDP GDP by expenditure Contribution %, YoY Source: Central Statistical Office 2012 UEFA European Football Championship

  4. 4. 4 Current account  Positive trade balance – weak domestic demand – import, favourable FX rate for exporters, increasing economic openness (export share in GDP 49% in 2013 vs. 39% in 2009 and 45% in 2011).  Strong current account data likely to support PLN.  In case of rapid PLN drop CB intervention possible – precedence intervention 7th of Jun, NBP’s comment: ”action as an attempt to prevent excessive currency moves”.

  11. 11. 11 Summary  Macroeconomic situation :  stronger consumption growth on the back of improving labour market situation – sustainable, and postponed durable goods spending – non sustainable,  fixed investments – recent data from large companies suggest some improvement is under way but we do not expect an increase in investment demand before 2014,  positive net export contribution will gradually decline as the recovery will progress,  lack of inflation preassure in the mid run.  Monetary policy  we expect interest rates to remain on hold at least until mid-2014 and we see a risk that the beginning of the tightening cycle could be delayed even further.  Other:  public finance: some fiscal discipline despite slowdown (fiscal balance: our forecast -4.5% vs. -3.5 planned), quasi nationalization of the pension funds assets (bonds’ part of the portfolio),  new EU budget for 2014-2020: Poland will receive EUR 105.8bn (EUR 4.5bn more vs. years 2007-13), including EUR 73bn EU of cohesion funds or around PLN 44bn a year (c.a. 3% of GDP) vs. EUR 67bn in 2007- 13.
