Meanwhile, the number of housing starts throughout 2022, at around 200,300, was 27.8 percent lower than a year earlier, the state-run Statistics Poland (GUS) agency said in a preliminary estimate.

Overall output in Poland’s construction-and-assembly sector decreased by 0.8 percent in December in year-on-year terms, while growing by 17.3 percent month on month, the state-run statistics agency reported.

Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said in a policy speech in November 2019 that his government would step up efforts to spur housing construction, mentioning a target of at least 200,000 new homes a year.

According to a study that year, Poland was building the largest number of new dwellings in Central Europe, but not enough to meet demand.

There is still a shortage of around 2 million housing units in Poland, according to some real estate experts.
