New roads in Poland, or any EU country are built to a very well defined specification for quality of workmanship and materials. The Chinese contractor would have priced against this specification under competitive tender. The client, in this case is the Polish Government (unless it is a PPP/PFI), will be obligated under the same to inspect and verify every agreed interim stage of construction.

The Chinese contractor will be cheaper, largely because they will bring their own labour. Speaking from my own experience, quality of workmanship in China is ok, so long as it is properly supervised. Problems will always arise when unrealistic construction delivery programmes result in the employment of unsupervised inferior skilled workers.

Law / Opening a Polish Bank Account by a foreigner in Poland. Recommendations. [298]

bank account with BZWBK

I have banked with BZWBK for over 3 years. Complete and utter rubbish really. Incompetent rude staff, poor advice given if any, terrible rates for savings and loans, charges for using your bank card to withdraw your money unless it is a WBK machine, and I could go on.

Go with Millennium, PKO BP, or Allior Bank.

UK, Ireland / Poland continues to milk Ireland dry. [129]


Simple question ...Why do you think Irish, or UK business owners and business leaders employ foreign labour, generally?

Dell left Ireland and relocated to Poland.

Don't worry they'll be off to the Ukraine when Polish wages start to become uncompetitive. This is simple economics.

The Irish nation has just been ass raped.

Not for the first time eh?
