Poland - Economic Policy

Short-term priorities:

Assessment (November 2003)

Please refer to the fact sheets on the adoption of the Community acquis.

Medium-term priorities:

  • regular reviewing of the joint assessment of economic policy priorities under the Europe Agreement, emphasising compliance with the Copenhagen criteria on membership of the European Union and Community legislation in economic and monetary policy (coordinating economic policies, introducing convergence programmes, fighting excessive deficits);
  • Poland should pursue policies for achieving genuine convergence in line with the European Union's objectives on economic and social cohesion and nominal convergence in keeping with the ultimate objective - adoption of the Euro. However, it is not expected that Poland will adopt the Euro immediately after accession.
