According to a report by UNCTAD, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, FDI inflow was very good for Poland last year. Advancing from 19th to 17th place, Poland is compared to Australia and Japan in terms of the level of international capital transfer.
Investments in Poland reached $2.4 billion and were four times higher than in 2020. Foreign direct investment FDI has reached its pre-pandemic high level in 2021, however, currently manufacturing investments slowly grow due to the war in Ukraine.
“After the stagnation, we suffered at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, last year saw a definite increase (by almost 80 percent) in the value of attracted investments. The statistics presented by UNCTAD are reflected in Polish Investment and Trade Agency’s (PAIH) results. Also, other reports, such as the FDI Intelligence report, show an increase in the number of foreign direct projects in Poland,” Krzysztof Drynda, President of PAIH said.
