With PKN Orlen’s prices down and the consumer price index (CPI) slowing, it looks like Poland is finally catching up with other European Union countries after its painful economic slump.

EUWorkers has sent Poland a powerful message this week with its latest Order, forcing the Member State to choose between its membership of the club of European integration or its path toward authoritarian illiberalism. However, it will be some time before the Court’s decision is fully implemented.

A key element of the interim measures requested by the Commission is that they should remain in place until supplanted by a value set for the EQ-5D-5L that has been generated using preferences elicited from a representative sample of the Polish general population.
