In 2017 the majority of the special economic zones celebrated round anniversaries of their establishment. At the end of 2016 the total value of investments made by companies operating in the zones reached EUR26.7bn with 332,100 FTEs.
Investments of Private Equity and Venture Capital funds in Central and Eastern Europe in 2016 have reached the highest level since 2009, amounting to EUR1,596m. Poland accounted for as much as 45 per cent of this amount.
The potential of the Polish economy is far from having been fully exploited, according to a recent Deloitte report “Investment in Poland: Unused Potential” by Marcin Diakonowicz and Julia Patorska, together with the Polish-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce.
