Poland remains an attractive target for foreign investments in the EU. The country has one of the largest populations in the EU (38 million), industrial heritage, central location and open access to all European markets.
The cost of labor in Poland is lower than the EU-average, and lower than in neighbouring countries of Germany or the Baltic States. Since joining the EU, Poland has been an exporter of labour to other European countries. On the other hand, workers from neighbouring countries (mainly from Ukraine) have moved in Poland in large quantities.
