NBP: FDI to rise by 30% in 2011


Foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows into Poland fell (slightly) for the third straight year in 2010, but will increase by 30% in 2011, returning to levels not seen since the downturn, according to estimates from the National Bank of Poland (NBP).

The bank calculates that FDI inflows reached €9.8bn in 2010. This is down from just under €10m in 2009 and compared with €10.1m in 2008. However, in 2011 the figure is projected to increase sharply, by almost €3bn to €12.7bn.

The NBP’s optimism contrasts with the more cautious approach of market observers and officials from Special Economic Zones, who point to the need for legal changes in order to reduce administrative barriers and create stronger incentives for foreign companies.
