New world, new order
After a sharp dip in 2009, Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) into Europe has returned to growth. In 2011 there were 3,906 inward investment projects — an increase of 4%. Even more striking, the average project was markedly larger and FDI job creation surged 15% to 157,824. There was also a 13% surge in sales and marketing projects, which totaled 1,977. Manufacturing ranked second, creating 97,229 jobs, with R&D in third place.
To stay competitive, international investors have opted to push ahead with business development. Despite the recent and ongoing economic volatility, Europe remains the world’s largest single market, and the magnetic attraction of its 500 million highspending consumers, together with a stable and transparent legal and regulatory environment, remain powerful draws for investors. more>>>

Our survey ranks Poland the second most attractive European country to invest in. The country is a beacon of hope in the CEE region, which witnessed a phenomenal decline in its attractiveness. Poland is the most populous former Communist country in the EU, and well placed to supply German customers at low cost. With strong domestic demand and robust growth through 2011, the country has been less affected by the 2011 slowdown than some of its neighbors. Poland was one of the few countries in the European Union to avoid recession in 2009 and though granted a precautionary loan by the IMF in 2010 has never needed to use it. As its economy develops, the kind of FDI that Poland attracts is changing. Once dominated by labor-intensive industries, inflows are increasingly knowledge centered. Well-qualified and productive workers, a pro-business environment and transparent tax and legal systems have helped give Poland a positive image among company and economic development executives worldwide. Warsaw, Poland’s capital, brought forward infrastructure investment as it prepared to co-host the Euro 2012 football championships. It has emerged as Eastern Europe’s leading financial center, contributing to a surge in demand for office space that ranked it third in the Urban Land Institute’s Emerging Trends in real estate Europe 2012 report.
In addition, UNCTAD ranks Kraków, Poland’s second largest city, as the leading emerging city worldwide for investment in global BPO projects. During 2011,Poland witnessed the opening of a large number of international outsourcing and shared services centers. Business is likely to continue to bolster capacity in Poland, aided by strong inflows of foreign capital, retained earnings and increasing corporate credit.
