WARSAW, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Poland's industrial output growth is set to accelerate to almost five percent in annual terms in the third quarter compared with 1.3 percent reported in the second, a deputy finance minister said on Wednesday.
The finance ministry's Janusz Cichon also said that he was not concerned with the slightly weaker output growth in August and said this could be blamed on seasonal factors.
Earlier on Wednesday data showed industrial output rose by 2.2 percent year-on-year in August, below the 2.85 analysts' forecast.
