President: Poland's macroeconomic data are very impressive

Poland's 2018 macroeconomic data, including 5 pct GDP growth, makes a huge impression on every investor taking part in the World Economic Forum in Davos, President Andrzej Duda told a public TV broadcaster on Wednesday.

The President said he had already held several meetings with large investors, whom he encouraged to visit Poland, and presented them with the country's macroeconomic data.

'Today, when some countries are still struggling with some of the aftermath of the 2008 crisis, a 5 pct GDP growth makes a really huge impression,' Andrzej Duda noted.

Invitation to Iran to Middle East conference an open issue - president

Asked about the possibility of inviting Iran to a Middle East conference in Warsaw in February, Polish President said it was 'an open issue' for the time being.

In early January, the US Department of State and the Polish Foreign Ministry announced that Warsaw will host a ministerial-level conference on issues pertaining to the Middle East, on February 13-14. The meeting is expected to focus chiefly on Iran.

'This is a decision which belongs to us as we are the host, and also to participants in the conference, so let's leave it for the time being,' the President told.
