"Next year, we plan to spend 137 billion zloty ($33 billion) on defense. That is more than four percent of our GDP," President Andrzej Duda said at a military trade fair in Kielce, Poland, quoted by the Polish news agency PAP.
That marks an increase on the 4 percent of GDP that it had pledged to spend this year as well as the 2 percent of GDP minimum agreed to by NATO allies.
