GDP growth is projected to slow noticeably in 2012 and 2013 due to a sharp fiscal retrenchment and the projected sharp slowdown in the euro area with private consumption and investment decelerating rapidly as a result. Weaker domestic demand may be partly compensated by stronger net exports, driven by the significant depreciation of the zloty and the 2012 football championships.
