Poland has Europe’s second most competitive manufacturing sector


Poland is the 14th most competitive manufacturing nation in the world and the second most competitive in Europe only behind Germany, according to the 2013 Global Manufacturing Competitiveness Index, an annual report by Deloitte and the US Council on Competitiveness.

The survey, which is based on interviews with more than 550 senior manufacturing executives around the world, has Poland just ahead of the United Kingdom with 5.87 points, out of 10. China is rated as the world's most competitive manufacturing nation, followed by Germany, the United States, India, and South Korea.

The respondents were also asked to rank nations in terms of expected manufacturing competitiveness five years from now. Here Poland slips into 18th in the world but remains 2nd in Europe with 5.69 points, reflecting an anticipated growing role of emerging markets outside the European continent. The top five are China, India, Brazil, Germany and the United States.
