Andrzej Duda was speaking in Davos, Switzerland, where he travelled to attend the World Economic Forum, an annual gathering of global political and business leaders.
Citing Poland's strong macroeconomic data, including its expected 2018 GDP growth of around 5 percent, Duda said in a media interview that the figures were making “a huge impression” on business leaders attending the Davos forum.
“At a time when some countries are still struggling with the vestiges of the 2008 crisis, GDP growth in the region of 5 percent is bound to make a huge impression,” Duda told public Polish broadcaster TVP in an interview.
Poland’s Finance Minister Teresa Czerwińska told reporters a day earlier that the country’s budget deficit in 2018 was between PLN 10 billion and PLN 11 billion, according to preliminary figures, far below the PLN 41.5 billion target for the year.
Thousands of international decision makers have turned out for the gathering in Davos, which opened on Tuesday and runs until Friday.
The Polish president on Tuesday officially opened the Polish House pavilion in the Swiss Alpine town, a venue for holding business meetings and promoting the country as a "can-do nation."
