Poland’s Economy Ministry has said that it would maintain its forecast for the country’s economic growth this year at 1.5 percent. The announcement comes after a series of macroeconomic data was published in recent weeks.

The projection is in line with the 1.5 percent year-on-year growth forecast that is part of Poland’s state budget for this year. However, Prime Minister Donald Tusk has recently said he expects 1.4 percent growth and the National Bank of Poland’s projection sees 2013 GDP growth at 1.3 percent.

Economy Ministry analysts had earlier said that they expect Q4 2013 GDP growth to come in at 2.3 percent. In late November, Poland’s statistics office GUS confirmed Q3 2013 economic growth at 1.9 percent.
