FDI Bonanza

Foreign direct investment in Poland rose 46.7 percent last year, reaching $14.2 billion, up from $9.7 billion in 2010, according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). Global FDI rose 17 percent last year.

Growing foreign investment in Poland should come as no surprise, because Polish cities have for years been ranked high in league tables of the most attractive locations for investors. Poland’s strong performance is confirmed in the Real Estate Investor Intentions survey conducted by the CBRE company and presented in March at the annual MIPIM 2012 real estate fair in Cannes, France. In the survey, Warsaw is the second most attractive investment destination on the European real estate market, right after London. The Polish capital ranks higher than Paris, which was very popular with investors last year, and also higher than Munich and Berlin in Germany.

At the same time, Warsaw is not the only Polish city to draw investors. In the latest Top Outsourcing Cities 2012 report from the Tholons company, Cracow ranks 11th among the world’s best investment destinations for modern business services. Cracow leads the way in Central and Eastern Europe and along with Dublin, is the best-scoring European city in the Tholons league table.

As far as countries are concerned, India is the winner this year again, with six Indian cities among the top 10 outsourcing destinations. Bangalore is number one for the second time in a row, ranking higher than Mumbai and New Delhi. In this year’s standings, Cracow has outranked Prague (number 20), Budapest (27) and Brno (31). At 38, Warsaw retains its position from two years ago, while Wroc³aw is again classified as an “aspiring” location and has advanced from number 84 to 78. If the Polish economy continues to grow strongly, then the largest Polish cities may do even better in the future.
