Poland's unemployment rate expected to fall in February

The unemployment rate in Poland may drop to 6.4 percent in February, according to a labour ministry forecast published on Tuesday.

Deputy Minister of Development, Labour and Technology Iwona Michałek, commenting on the latest unemployment statistics, wrote on Twitter that Poland's labour market continues to be "in good shape."
