Poland: the "Golden age" of economic growth
With an uninterrupted GDP growth for the last 20 years (+4% / year on average), Poland has become the fastest-growing large economy in the world according to the World Bank. Since 1989, Poland has increased its GDP per capita by almost 150% and the average purchasing power of a Polish citizen has increased by over 55% since 2009. Major industrial and infrastructure projects have been undertaken in the last decade supported by over 180 bln GBP of European funds between 2007 – 2020. Business is flourishing: how can British companies take advantage of this spectacular growth?
