In its spring forecast, the commission had projected that Polish inflation would be 1.3 percent this year and 2.5 percent in 2019.
Poland’s investment and development minister said last month that the Polish economy was set to grow over 4 percent this year.
Jerzy Kwieciński said he expected GDP growth in the second quarter to be close to the 5.2 percent in the first three months of this year.
According to Poland’s Central Statistical Office, the country’s GDP grew 4.9 percent in the final quarter of 2017 and expanded 4.6 percent in 2017 as a whole.
