The reading was in line with a flash estimate released by the state-run statistics agency earlier this month.

In Novemberthe prices of consumer goods and services in Poland were 7.8 percent higher than in the same month a year earlier, according to the Central Statistical Office.

In October, Poland's consumer price index stood at 6.8 percent, the statistics agency has said.

The Polish central bank’s Monetary Policy Council in early January raised key interest rates for the fourth time in as many months in a bid to combat surging prices.

Adam Glapiński, governor of the National Bank of Poland (NBP), has said that inflation in the country is expected to average 7.6 percent in 2022, rising from 2021.
