World Bank not sure of Poland's return to GDP growth of above 5%.

By bne IntelliNews March 22, 2011
Even though Poland has weathered down the recent global crisis very well, one cannot be sure whether it will be able to return to high growth rates, which exceeded 5 percent a year before the crisis, deems Marcin Piatkowski, World Bank senior economist and one of the authors of the report Warsaw entitled Europe 2020 Poland: Fuelling Growth and Competitiveness in Poland through Employment, Skills, and Innovation, presented in Warsaw. Poland has already undertaken important reforms in many areas, but it needs to go further to sustain its impressive pre-crisis growth rates and meet the new targets on which Poland still lags behind, the economist added. In January, the World Bank upheld its forecasts concerning Poland's GDP growth at 4.1% in 2011 and 4.5% in 2012. ISB
