Fifty percent of Poles have decided to start saving in 2013, according to a study carried out for the ING Group.
That puts the country in fourth place out of the fourteen countries which participated in the study. The highest number of people planning to save was recorded in Romania (59 percent). Luxembourg and Austria placed slightly ahead of Poland at 52 percent. For context, just one in five residents of Great Britain admitted to plans for savings in 2013.
Looking at a more detailed breakdown of the Polish scenario, we find our household priorities vary: one in three wants to start saving, one in four wants to reduce debt load, while 40 percent want to manage their money more effectively.
