A total of 83,217 housing units were completed nationwide from January to June, the PAP news agency reported, citing preliminary data.
According to real estate experts, there is still a shortage of around 3 million housing units in Poland.
Poland’s government last month decided to move forward with a bill aiming to speed up the construction of new homes.
The new rules are expected to shorten the time it takes for a housing construction project to get administrative clearance and get off the ground from five years to just one year, Poland’s PAP news agency reported at the time.
