Warsaw, 25 June 2021 – The article “Post-Pandemic Stabilisation and Challenges” by Professor Adam Glapiński, Governor of NBP, appears in today’s issue of the French journal L’Opinion.

The article is released as part of the project “We’re Telling the World about Poland”, whose latest edition is devoted to innovative Poland and ideas for exiting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

In his article for L’Opinion, Professor Adam Glapiński, Governor of NBP writes that “[…] determining the optimal exit strategy from unconventional monetary policy measures is quite a challenge. However, one can certainly say that this process – both around the world and in Poland – should be wisely spread over time and treated as an element of continuity of the central bank’s policies, which on the one hand cannot undermine the foundations of the post-crisis growth, and on the other hand, cannot allow the build-up of macroeconomic and financial imbalances.”

“We have ambitious plans for the future, which all have one thing in common – to facilitate Poland’s catching up with the wealthiest countries. In pursuit of this goal, we must not only conduct prudent monetary policy, but also fully take advantage of the opportunities created by the increase in our foreign exchange reserves,” the NBP Governor writes further on in the article.

“[…] we must prudently lead Poland out onto the path of sustainable growth and convergence as well as wisely invest our growing reserve assets. At stake is a secure future and further improvement in the living conditions of millions of Polish citizens,” Prof. Adam Glapiński emphasises in his article for the French newspaper.

L’Opinion is one of the most influential newspaper titles in France and the main partner of The Wall Street Journal in Europe.

Prof. Adam Glapiński’s article, accompanied by texts by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland, historians and other intellectuals published as part of the project “We’re Telling the World about Poland,” is also appearing this weekend in more than 50 media around the world. All the articles are devoted to innovative Poland; they are published on the website www.WszystkoCoNajwazniejsze.pl.

The latest edition of the project “We’re Telling the World about Poland” is carried out by Instytut Nowych Mediów (the New Media Institute) with the support of the Institute of National Remembrance, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Narodowy Bank Polski and the Polish Press Agency.
