Exports also increased, exceeding the value of EUR 50 billion for the first time in history and amounting to exactly EUR 50.28 billion. That's as much as 26.5 percent. more than a year earlier, so the increase is very large.

When it comes to Poland's main partners, the leaders are as follows: Germany (35.9%), France (8.9%), Czech Republic (7%) and Italy (6.2%).

This is primarily due to large cuts in the automotive market, including group layoffs announced by, among others, Continental, Bosch, Forvia and Autoliv.
