Poland is Central Europe’s leading economy - a closely located, growing and healthy economy with good business climate and many business opportunities.
The Polish economy exhibits strong, continuous growth. During the last 30 years GDP per capita has increased by around 150 percent, more than any other country in Europe. During the financial crisis Poland was the only growing economy in EU and is now similar in size as the Swedish one. In 2018 the growth rate was 5,1 percent, among the highest in EU. In the same year Poland became the first post-communist country to join the FTSE Russell list of developed markets.
With a population of 38,5 million Poland is a market with high potential for Swedish companies. The trade with Poland grows and the country becomes increasingly important export market for Swedish products. Swedish export to Poland has doubled during the last 9 years and amounted to 48 billion Swedish kronor in 2018, 21 percent increase from 2017. Export per capita is still 3,5 times smaller than to the Baltics, which means large potential for further growth.
