After the PMR Forum

The Bittersweet Taste of the Construction Recovery

140 executives from leading construction firms converged on the Airport Okecie Hotel in Warsaw on 12 October to take part in the second edition of PMR’s annual Construction in Poland Forum. They came to share experiences, exchange views on current trends in the sector, and outline their plans for the immediate future. And it was clear, listening to the panel discussions and to the informal exchanges on the margins, that the market landscape has changed markedly since the previous conference in 2016. One of the Forum’s highlights was the unveiling of a new report from PMR, Construction sector in Poland H2 2017. Market analysis and development forecasts for 2017-2022. Bartlomiej Sosna, PMR’s Head Construction Market Analyst, took the audience through the latest data on the Polish construction market performance and outlook, while Jaroslaw Frontczak, PMR’s Head Retail Market Analyst, and Krystian Gryzlo, a PMR Market Analyst, ran a parallel workshop on DIY and home furnishings e-commerce.

Polish economy in good shape

Prof. Grzegorz W. Kolodko, the noted economist and former finance minister, was the special guest of this year’s Forum, and he talked about the main macroeconomic and political factors shaping the present and future economic situation in Europe and Poland. In his opinion, one of the most important determinants from the point of view of many Polish companies is the exchange rate. Currency risk makes business decision-making and planning harder – that’s one of the reasons why adopting the euro would be good for Poland. According to Prof. Kolodko, the zloty is likely to remain volatile but trending upwards in the years ahead.
