During the current global economic slowdown, Poland stands out as a European growth champion. With an uninterrupted pace of high growth averaging 4.2% per annum between 1992-2019, Poland is steadily catching up and has become the seventh-largest economy in the EU.
Large Domestic Market

Problems faced by youth in today’s Poland
Voice of Youth, April 2019
The country’s unemployment is 4%, whereas that of youth is at 12%.
Despite that over 80% of students in my country acquire higher education, many employers fail to give those of my kind a chance to prove their potential. Unlike other European countries in which new graduates are absorbed into the workforce almost as soon as they step out of school.
Youth in Poland also face a lot of challenges in their quest to access financial resources. The majority of financial institutions in my country shy away from lending youth money because of their inability to pay for the high costs of the transaction, lack of financial documentation and the difficulty in managing their risks profile.
Religion in Poland
Poland is widely a religious country and has instituted the right to freedom of religion. The largest religion in Poland is Roman Catholicism, a community with a culture of charity donation.
