The coronavirus pandemic and the global lockdown had an extraordinarily strong impact on the economies of all countries in the world.

However, according to the World Bank expert, the Polish economy is more resilient than others, and the fiscal situation in Poland is noticeably better than in other countries of the region.

  • support from the World Bank,
  • quick interventions of the National Bank of Poland providing the necessary liquidity for the banking sector through the program of quantitative easing of monetary policy – the value of the purchases of bonds amounted to nearly 4% GDP,
  • the amount of debt in relation to Poland’s GDP is one of the lowest in the European Union, thanks to which the government has a budgetary space to respond to the crisis.
