After 27 years of continuous growth, Europe’s fastest-growing economy was boosted by FTSE Russell’s upgrade from Emerging to Developed in September 2018. One year later, on the 15th anniversary of Poland’s accession to the EU, 20 years after joining NATO, and 30 years since Poland became a free market economy, Poland Today will present – for leading international journalists from 25-30 countries around the world – Poland’s business & economic story, and take a look at what lies ahead.
Strategically located between east and west, the 6th largest EU country by population size and 8th largest by total GDP, Poland’s future matters for the future of Europe. And while the economy develops well, the country still faces challenges common to all countries: a shrinking workforce, an aging population, fossil fuels vs renewable energy, how to manage immigration, how to deal with emigration, and many others.
With two major elections coming up in the next 12 months (parliamentary and presidential), these are crucial times for Poland – with major consequences for the country’s legislative, economic and business future.
