Poland’s inflation forecast at 1.7pct in 2014 - report
December 30, 2013
Poles will suffer some of the traditional New Year price increases, but not enough to drive any notable rise in inflation, the daily Rzeczpospolita reports citing economists who said inflation should rise from 0.7% in 2013 to 1.7% next year.
Household utility prices will rise by some 4% following hikes in regulated prices for gas and electricity, Pekao SA economist Marcin Mrowiec said.
Fuel prices could come down, a fuel market expert adds, and city transport tickets need not rise much, the daily writes.
White goods and home electronics will continue to come down in price lightly, the daily writes. Cars will likely see price stability, an industry expert said. Apartment prices should start to rise in 2014 after recent declines.
