On April 19, 2016, Institute for Structural Research will organize a seminar "Public finances in Poland – diagnosis and perspectives". The aim of the seminar is to diagnose the state of public finances in Poland and broaden public debate on the risks of budgetary imbalances.
The debate will address the insufficient level of transparency of public finances. The challenges of future fiscal policy will be discussed.   In the first session, speakers will discuss Polish budgetary policy: structure of tax revenues and public  expenditure. The fiscal policy response to the global financial crisis will be analysed. The second session will be devoted to weaknesses of public finance transparency in Poland. We will demonstrate tools, such as website applications, that can popularize information on public finances among citizens. Meeting will end with a discussion panel of experts on the future of public finances in Poland.
