WARSAW, Poland – Poland's statistical office says initial estimates show that the nation's economy grew by 3.8 percent in 2010.
The office released its estimates on Friday. The final figures are expected later this year.
The figures show that Poland's economy is picking up after a time of a slowdown amid the global financial crisis.
Poland's economy, however, also grew by 1.7 percent in 2009, making it the only European Union member state to avoid recession that year.
