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 and stable economic growth. 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.
