In its latest Fiscal Monitor, the IMF also lowered its projection for Poland’s 2018 debt-to-GDP ratio to 50.8 percent from the 53.8 percent it forecast earlier, the PAP news agency reported on Wednesday.

In the latest issue of its World Economic Outlook report, the IMF revised upward its forecast for Poland’s economic growth this year and next.
