21 Dec 2018

The findings of Construction Market in Poland – December 2018 show that the aggregate net profit of the 22 construction groups listed on the WSE totalled nearly 170 million zloty (approximately 40 million euros) in the third quarter of 2018, compared to net profit of 162 million zloty (38 million euros) registered in the corresponding period of 2017.
