Greenfield investments

This type of investment takes place when a parent company decides to start from scratch and constructs new facilities in a country outside of where the company is headquartered. According to the fDi Intelligence: Global greenfield investment trends report, Poland came in third (excluding the United Kingdom and Russia) in Europe and became one of the leaders in this type of business ventures.

Spectacular boost

Poland set a record in the number of FDI – a growth of 53 per cent as compared to 2016. It can be translated to over 99,000 workplaces, which is more than in the United Kingdom (80,000) or Russia (70,000). Foreign investors also had a tendency to spend in Poland much more than in 2016 (over 50 per cent growth) – they left here 14.8 billion dollars.

Warsaw on top

A shining star on Poland’s (and Europe’s!) investment map is the capital of Poland, Warsaw, which attracts mainly investments from the sector of financial services. The city created the second highest declared number of workplaces in FDI (17,800). It looked even better in terms of investment projects (81), where it is ahead of such agglomerations as Berlin (76) or Moscow (64). Overall, in the general ranking, it came third right after Edinburgh and Moscow.
