Poland has positioned itself as a regional economic leader, and taken a prominent position in international supply chains from west to east. So concludes a new economic study by ING, the leading international bank in Poland, on the occasion of the first official state visit by the King of the Netherlands.

Poland is one of the fastest growers in the CEE region, with the economy expected to expand by 3.7% this year and accelerate to 4.1% next year. Cumulative Polish GDP grew by 41.2% between 2005 and 2013.

Rob Ruhl, Head of Business Economics at ING, said: “The excellent economic performance of Poland puts it in the centre of the region, a regional heavyweight that is playing an important economic role now and in the future. The high growth figure and the acceleration it is seeing in development is very interesting for many companies looking to expand and invest globally.”
