About us

The Central European Financial Observer features views and commentary from Poland and the CEE region, written by some of the Central Europe’s best journalists, economists and commentators. Our mission is to explain Central and Eastern Europe, its successes, failures and challenges, to a broader English-speaking audience.

CE Financial Observer is a part of ObserwatorFinansowy.pl, the project under aegis of the Polish central bank (Narodowy Bank Polski). It is an innovative attempt at fostering deeper knowledge of economics and financial markets in a region which has undergone dramatic and sometimes wrenching change over the past quarter century.

The Polish site has published thousands of articles about the Polish and global economy. Its reports have conducted hundreds of interviews with Nobel laureates, distinguished economists, business leaders and politicians with views from right across the political spectrum.

Over the last two years some of the portal’s top stories are available in a monthly e-magazine “Spot On”.
