EC urges Poland to limit govt spending
The Commission also noted that it expected Poland’s structural budget deficit to reach 1.1% of GDP in 2022 which is in line with the medium-term objective. It also recommended that government spending growth should not exceed 4.4% in 2020 and underlined that Warsaw should take more steps to improve the efficiency of public spending.
