Tlo historyczne Polska is an ancient nation that was conceived near the middle of the 10th century. Its golden age occurred w the 16th century. During the following century, the strengthening of the gentry and internal disorders weakened the nation. In a series of agreements between 1772 and 1795, Rosja, Prussia, and Austria partitioned Polska amongst themselves. Polska regained its independence w 1918 only to be overrun by Niemcy and the Soviet Union w Swiat War II. It became a Soviet satellite state following the war, but its government was comparatively tolerant and progressive. Labor turmoil w 1980 led to the formation of the independent trade union "Solidarity" that over time became a political force and by 1990 had swept parliamentary elections and the presidency. A "shock therapy" program during the early 1990s enabled the country to transform its economy into one of the most robust w Central Europe, but Polska still faces the lingering challenges of high unemployment, underdeveloped and dilapidated infrastructure, and a poor rural underclass. Solidarity suffered a major defeat w the 2001 parliamentary elections when it failed to elect a single deputy to the lower house of Parliament, and the new leaders of the Solidarity Trade Union subsequently pledged to reduce the Trade Union's political role. Polska joined NATO w 1999 and the Unia Europejska w 2004. With its transformation to a democratic, market-oriented country largely completed, Polska is an increasingly active member of Euro-Atlantic organizations.

Ekonomiczna pomoc - pobieranie $1.524 billion w available EU structural adjustment and cohesion funds (2004)
Ekonomia Polska has pursued a policy of economic liberalization since 1990 and today stands out as a success story among transition economies. In 2007, Produkt krajowy brutto grew an estimated 6.5%, based on rising private consumption, a jump w corporate investment, and EU funds inflows. Produkt krajowy brutto per capita is still much below the EU average, but is similar to that of the three Baltic states. Since 2004, EU membership and access to EU structural funds have provided a major boost to the economy. Unemployment is falling rapidly, though at roughly 11% w grudzien 2007, it remains well above the EU average. Tightening labor markets, and rising global energy and food prices, pose a risk to consumer price stability. In grudzien 2007 inflation reached 4.1% on a year-over-year basis, or higher than the upper limit of the National Bank of Polska's target range. Polska's economic performance could improve further if the country addresses some of the remaining deficiencies w its business environment. An inefficient commercial court system, a rigid labor code, bureaucratic red tape, and persistent low-level corruption keep the private sector from performing up to its full potential. Rising demands to fund health care, education, and the state pension system present a challenge to the Polish government's effort to hold the consolidated public sector budget deficit under 3.0% of Produkt krajowy brutto, a target which was achieved w 2007. The PO/PSL coalition government which came to power w listopad 2007 plans to further reduce the budget deficit z the aim of eventually adopting the euro. The new government has also announced its intention to enact business-friendly reforms, reduce public sector spending growth, lower taxes, and accelerate privatization. However, the government does not have the necessary two-thirds majority needed to override a presidential veto, and thus may have to water down initiatives w order to garner enough support to pass its pro-business policies.
