WARSAW, April 20 Rating agency Fitch downgraded Polish debt collector GetBack by two notches late on Thursday adding to worries about the company's outstanding $520 million (1.77 bln zlotys) debt after its shares lost nearly 90 percent of their value since October.
WARSAW Poland's credit rating might be raised if its fiscal deficit stays around 2 percent of gross domestic product for the next two years, an analyst for S&P Global Ratings said on Wednesday.
WARSAW If Polish economic growth slowed sharply and inflation stayed below the central bank's target, it could respond with unconventional policy tools similar to those used by the ECB, rate-setter Lukasz Hardt said.
WARSAW Poland's planned cut in income tax for smaller companies will cost up to 600 million zlotys (124.8 million pounds) per year, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Monday, suggesting that it would have little impact on the budget.
WARSAW Poland is likely to keep interest rates on hold at their current all-time low until a hike in the last quarter of 2019, a Reuters poll found on Thursday, reflecting a surprising slowdown in inflation and dovish comments by the central bank governor.

WARSAW Concessions in judicial reforms planned by Poland's ruling party are aimed at signalling to the European Commission that a compromise with Warsaw is possible, but will preserve the most important part of the reforms, the Polish prime minister said.
WARSAW Poland's ruling party plans to change some of its judicial reforms in response to European Commission criticism that they threaten to undermine the rule of law, one of the party's lawmakers said on Thursday.
WARSAW Poland accused the European Union on Wednesday of "double standards" in its treatment of member states, a day after Brussels rejected Warsaw's defence of its court reforms that critics say threaten democracy.
WARSAW German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Monday she hoped authorities in Warsaw would satisfy Europe's concerns over the rule of law in Poland, as the two countries also faced gaps to bridge over migration and a new gas pipeline.
