According to the Employers of Poland, the latest GUS (CSO - Central Statistical Office of Poland) data show the downward pressure on inflation. The prices of goods and services have increased by 2.4 % compared to December 2011, and increased by 0.1% compared to the previous month. This is surprising, especially if one takes into account the Christmas shopping. A year ago, an increase in inflation calculated month-to- month was 0.4 %.
According to the experts of the Employers of Poland, inflation has ceased to be the biggest threat to Polish economy. - This justifies a further lowering of interest rates by the Monetary Policy Council. The inflationary threat has passed, so now the focus should be on economic growth; and that was not conducive to the policy of high rates because it made a credit an inaccessible good - says Piotr Wolejko, an expert of the organization.
