In the Driver’s Seat: An Introduction to the Polish Automotive Industry - A Webinar and Networking Event

The automotive industry is a key driver of Poland’s economy. It is the second largest industry sector in Poland and makes up 4% of the country’s GDP. From setting up assembly plants to supplying local manufacturers, multinational OEMs and internationally recognized brands have become integral contributors to the globalized automotive ecosystem present in Poland. With the industry’s supply chain consisting of over 1,000 companies and export-oriented operations, Poland offers great opportunities for American-based companies looking to do business.

The U.S and Poland’s trade relationship has greatly benefitted from the bilateral trade of automotive parts. Last year, U.S. imports of automotive parts from Poland grew by nearly 54% to a total of $354.1 million - this increase helped make Poland the 10th fastest-growing U.S. trade partner in 2019.

  • learn about the Polish automotive industry,
  • learn about the impact of COVID-19 and about possibilities for alternative supply chains,
