Polish Investors are Increasingly Expanding Westwards
The total sum of Polish direct investments in Germany continues to rise as more and more Polish companies seize the opportunity to boost their sales by expanding westwards. Poland has been experiencing strong economic growth and was the only country in the European Union to post a rise in GDP at the start of the 2008 financial crisis. This earned the country the nickname of the EU’s “green island”. The gradual saturation of the Polish market by local companies and their associated search for new markets is thus a natural development. Surveys indicate that rising numbers of Polish businesses intend to invest in foreign markets over the next few years.
Close Economic Ties between Poland and Germany
Poland and Germany enjoy very strong economic ties, with Germany becoming Poland’s most important trading partner after Poland joined the European Union in 2004. Similarly, the Polish market is proving increasingly attractive to German investors. Growing numbers of Polish and German companies are routinely investing in the neighbouring country. A stable economy, well-developed infrastructure and a transparent and reliable legal framework make the German market – Europe’s largest contiguous economic region – an attractive investment environment for Polish entrepreneurs.
