An analysis of the investment attitudes of 500 international decision makers by Ernst & Young finds that 10 percent favor Poland as a destination for large investments in Europe, ahead of the UK by 2 percent. The most-favored destination in Europe is Germany, with 35 percent.
Even though the UK remains Europe’s top destination for foreign direct investment in terms of the number of projects, based on E&Y’s figures from 2011, Germany could overtake it within two years, and Poland is not far behind.
In 2012, despite the economic crisis, Poland noticed a 6 percent increase of FDI compared with 2011, reports Rzeczpospolita, citing Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency data. It has finished 53 projects with a total value of €1.236 million, which are expected to create nearly 10,000 new jobs.
