Poland -Economic indicators problematic -January 27, 2014

According to statistics provided by the Ministry of Labour, over 2.15 million people were registered as unemployed in December 2013, marking a 0.5% rise since November. A government spokesperson said that any level of unemployment that is in double figures is ‘a big problem’, but there is reason for optimism as it is the first time since 2007 that unemployment at the end of the year is the same as in the previous year. However, other sources forecast hard times for the economy.
