Situated in the heartland of Europe, Poland has been both a bridge and a front line between eastern and western Europe. Poland has steadfastly pursued a policy of economic liberalization throughout the 1990s and today stands out as a success story among transition economies. Further progress in public finance depends mainly on privatization of Poland’s remaining state sector, the reduction of state employment, and an overhaul of the tax code.
