Poland’s economy is considered to be among the more resilient of the post-communist countries and is one of the fastest growing within the E.U. Having a strong domestic market, low private debt, flexible currency and not being dependent on a single export sector, Poland is the only European economy to have avoided the late-2000s recession. The Polish banking sector is the largest in the CEE.
