Poland one of the top spots for Investment

According to an article I read in the Warsaw Voice, Poland is 2nd to Germany and UK (tied) for foreign investors which is very promising for Poland.

Ernst & Young survey shows Poland as second most attractive investment destination in Europe

Poland is in seventh place in the world in terms of the attractiveness for foreign investors according to Ernst & Young’s survey: “The attractiveness of investment in Europe in 2007.”

Prime positions in the rankings are taken by China and the USA, whilst among European nations, joint first place is taken by Germany and Great Britain. Poland is unquestionably the leader among the countries from Central and Eastern Europe.

For the second consecutive year, Poland is the leader in terms of new work places. In 2006, 31,115 new jobs came into being, which is a somewhat weaker figure than that of 2005 (37,745), however Poland still exceeds all other European countries in this field.

Ermm... I certainly think you're not right. Germany is West-Central Europe, and Poland is Central.

That's what my understanding has always been.

Nein, nein, nein, nein! *searches for map*

Look...Germany is that central they even had a wall through it, splitting it in western and eastern half...so you see....German is the most central of all!

*packs map away*

I know...I was referring to your quote because I agreed with it. :)

That means nothing.....I live in the "midwest" USA, and if you are looking at a map, it looks like I live more east than "Midwest". Don't get so bent outta shape, BB.....it's just semantics....I think everyone gets the gist of the article.....that Poland is a top contender for foreign investment, inside Europe.

Did you check wikipedia mayby? Even Wikipedia auf Deutsch shows that what I've said is true! Ha! ;-)

Moreover I've seen a map that was shown the central point of Europe. In polish Podlasie ;-)

Bloody hell, in the past there was sth different. Eh, in this point - my bad. But in the English one is my version!

But let we see... If we connect headlands like: Roca in Portugal, Cape Matapan, North Cape and central point of Ural mountains - we've got a cross that has a middle point in the Masovian Plain.

Moreover Poland lies in the Central European Time. It's not the main argument here ;-).

But in conclusion - what are we arguing about?

Ahaaa, I think I'm starting to get your humor, BB......hmmmm. :) (of course, not counting UK would totally discount your original argument :D)

Brat, dude, check Polen on your Wiki. There is written: ein Staat in Mitteleuropa. I was talking about this one ;-).

It's nice that we did established that fact, but just to clear this once and for all:

PS: I don't mind being called a Eastern European though. :)

Of course you don't.....
That's why I said this about you a while back...... :)

Daffy, it is your strong understanding that there is little difference between people per se, and nationality/culture that is such an asset to the forum. When someone says something racist, you are usually one of the first posters to "call it out", and redirect.

I know get get weary of repaeating yourself, time and time again, but I think it helps people to understand when you really spell it out with a case in point. And each time you do this, there are different people around, so your message isn't necessarily going down the drain.

I also admire Matyjasz for his cool, centered approach to those that insult and provoke. He is like someone sitting outside enjoying a drink, while some pesky gnat buzzes around his head. The gnat may be annoying, but it won't stop Maty from enjoying his drink. And if it gets too close, he'll just smile, and flick it away, and have another sip. :)

The centre of the continent of Europe is near Warsaw isn't it?

Some say that It is near £ódź, some others that in the Czech Republic, but officially this is... in Lithuania.

So many kind words and I'm a compliment addict. :) I will definitely have to check more on this place. Thanks. :)

As for the Eastern European thing, I met a lot of westerners that think that Poles became Europeans just recently on the 1st may 2004... That we are some kind of “poor” cousins from the east, backward neighbors, etc... I say: very well than. I'm OK being an Eastern European. I fell more connected with Hungarians, Lithuanians, Slovakians, Czechs, etc than with French, Italians or Germans… I know where I’m coming from and I know where I’m going. I’m not going to pretend that I’m a westerner. Don’t feel the need to. :)

OK, it's late here. Good Night. See you tommorow. I predict a heated history debate comming. Bye :)
