fDi Intelligence: Poland ranks top for FDI by job creation

Last year, Poland attracted greenfield investments with the largest number of jobs in Europe. It was also in the top five most attractive directions of FDI inflow in terms of the number of projects. The European capital with the second largest employment was Warsaw.

According to fDi Intelligence, in 2017, the number of FDI projects into Poland increased 24% to 338, ranking it fifth as a destination market for FDI into Europe. The country ranked top for FDI by job creation in 2017 with an increase of 53%. “Over 99,000 jobs makes Poland an unquestionable leader on our continent,” said Krzysztof Senger, vice-president of the Polish Investment and Trade Agency (PAIH). The UK with 80,000 jobs and Russia with 70,000 came in second and third.

In terms of the total CAPEX invested in Poland, it grew by nearly 50% y/y and amounted to USD 14.8bn. Furthermore, the market share increased from 6% in 2016 to 8% in 2017.

The data regarding 2017 was also very favourable for Warsaw. The city came second in terms of the number of workplaces created due to FDI inflow, leaving behind such European metropolises as Berlin and Moscow.

FDI into Europe increased by 14% in 2017, with a total inward capital investment of $183.9bn. Project numbers increased by 5% and jobs created increased 12% to 578,638.
