Doing Business in Poland - read our Investor's guide
Poland is a leader in the CEE region in terms of the number of greenfield investments, and ranks third in Europe. The value of investments in Poland in 2019 was estimated at USD 21.8 billion. Moreover, thanks to its stable economy and resilience to crisis, the Coronavirus pandemic did not reverse the positive investment trends in Poland. Interestingly, 94% of investors are willing to reinvest in Poland, which is a significant proof of their trust in Polish economy. And most importantly, this willingness is growing every year.

Piotr Dytko, Member of PAIH's Management Board
2022 was a successful time for PAIH and another record year in terms of FDI inflow. Once again, we are breaking our own record in the number and value of investment projects. Since 2020, each subsequent year is getting better. We have proved that uncertainty in the markets, the entry of the global economy into the post-pandemic era and war in Ukraine, are not able to stop the flow of investments to Poland. We are still an attractive country for investors. 126 investments worth over EUR 3.7 billion in 2022 are clear proof of this. I also want to emphasize that we will also make every effort to work even harder to promote Poland on the international arena in 2023 and record an even better result.
Łukasz Grabowski, Director of PAIH’s Center for Export
As a country, we are close to entering the TOP-20 of the world's largest exporters. Most often we export to countries in Europe. The largest recipients of Polish goods include Germany, the Czech Republic and France. However, our exporters are also more and more boldly looking beyond Europe. Africa and the Middle East are a very promising direction of expansion for Polish investors and businesses. The dynamic economic development of these regions, increasing purchasing power and, in the case of Africa, the highest birth rate in the world provide strong foundations and arguments for intensifying economic cooperation. Poland’s exports to Asia are also growing. Our food and cosmetics are highly valued in this region. From year to year, the group of Polish companies that are benefiting from the free trade agreements (FTA) is growing.
Karol Kubica, Head of PAIH’s Foreign Trade Office in Kiev
In June 2022, we became in charge of a cooperation project in preparation for the resumption of exports and post-war reconstruction of Ukraine. So far, nearly 1.7 thousand Polish companies have applied to join the project. As many as 1/3 of them represent the construction sector. The database also includes the ICT, machinery, pharmaceutical and medical industries and agri-food industries. Entrepreneurs who have come to us are interested in both export to, investment in and cooperation with Ukrainian contractors in the role of subcontractors. Interestingly, nearly 60% of those who applied, employ from 1 to 49 employees. Thus, our base is dominated by micro and small companies. Since August, we have organized five events for applicants - including training and consultation. In total, over 1.5 thousand representatives of Polish business have participated in them.
