Poland's PM Donald Tusk
Poland stands chances of recording an above 3% GDP growth in 2014 versus 1.6% estimated for 2013, Prime Minister Donald Tusk told a news conference.

"Already a few months ago I said that we have planned a very cautious and conservative GDP growth option in the budget on purpose, but my personal conviction is that 3% is certainly within reach," Tusk said. "I am an optimist and if I were to bet - like in sports - I would bet on a growth exceeding 3% in 2014."

Comments follow a release of flash GDP reading by the Central Statistical Office (GUS) on Friday, pointing to a 2.7% GDP growth in Q4 2013, up from 1.9% in Q3 2013.

Poland's 2014 budget is built on 2.5% GDP growth but Poland is expected to record a higher GDP growth rate, officials had previously said.

Finance Minister Mateusz Szczurek recently said he expected 2014 to come above 2.9% he had forecast for Q4'13.
