This concern is further exacerbated by the fact that price increases in the euro area have clearly slowed down, whereas in Poland there are no signs of such trend. It seems, however, that in spite of negative signals, one should expect disinflation in the short term – judging from the seasonal price dynamics and a number of other factors…

Appeal of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers to Senators of the Republic of Poland with regard to the “10H Act”
