"The defrosting of other branches of the Polish economy has been going on since April and, as our research shows, we are coping with this process quite well. Numerous studies show that entrepreneurs assess their financial liquidity better and better. The COVID-19 EFL Barometer shows, among others that already in May, in sectors such as services, transport and HoReCa, which were heavily affected by the restrictions, the mood began to improve. It is true that there is no return to normalcy, because it is a long-term process that may take up to several years, but you can see that we are on the right track. Of course, the coming months and the development of the coronavirus epidemic will have a huge impact on what will happen," Joanna Mroczek, head of the Market Research and Consulting departments as well as in Poland and the CEE region at CBRE, said.
