UN notes Poland as investment magnet
25.07.2011 12:47
According to the latest report by the UN Conference for Trade and Development (UNCTAD) World Investment Report 2011 Poland has been placed 6th on a list of the most attractive investment locations for the years 2011-2013.

In 2010 Poland ranked tenth on the list behind China, the USA, India, Brazil and Russia , and leaving behind economic giants such as Germany, Great Britain and Singapore.

The report also notes Poland's high ranking in the business services sector, while the southern city of Krakow has been placed first in the ranking of cities which have the best development perspectives for such services.

The Polish city is followed by Beijing, Buenos Aires ,Cairo and Sao Paolo.

Sounds like good news, but I wonder where PolskieRadio got the information from. The report hasn't even been published yet.

Further proof that the current government is running Poland well. That and taking full advantage of the EU subsidies. Looks like Premier Tusk will be the first Polish Premier to get a second term!

Do you think that you will impress anyone here with these bull*shits ?

Let's be honest - you're probably not even in Poland, so why you feel the need to comment about the country while paying taxes to foreign powers is entirely beyond me.

Anyway, Poland is doing fine.

Post 5 meaningful economic reforms done by Tusk's gov in the last 4 years.

Why are you so frustrated?

Why do you think I am ? Because I don't believe in cheap propaganda ? Because I don't agree with people spreading nonsense that every second person own a new car in Poland ? Because I know more about the situation of Polish economy than you ?

This is the truth - as Delphi said, Poland is doing fine and it looks like the current government will get a second term. .

A certain amount of credit is due to Poland's EU membership. Access to export markets, foreign labour markets and of course the huge and effective subsidies that you said you would give back your share of. Have you done that yet?

Nah, he's just frustrated that Tusk doesn't pay him to sit at home and instead expects him to actually work for a living.

I mean, how dare Tusk demand real work for real money!

Hey, I think we have alread gone through that in another thread, started by you, btw. :):):):) Successes of Tusk`s government, wasn`t it?

And to the best of MY memory, I listed a few for you.

Do you wanna relive those happy moments ? :):):):)

Do you people really don't realize that you behave like (at best) 13 years kids ? Ganging up on those, who don't agree with your childish views... Yeah I have no job, no one likes me and I don't live in Poland... and what's most important, I'm dreaming to become a teacher, what a career ! :))))

I mean, how dare Tusk demand real work for real money!

You are pathetic, I'm not going to waste any more time educating you... I will only suggest you to read what people like Krzysztof Rybiński are thinking about the situation of Poland.

Yep. You were struggeling to post anything else than government propaganda. The last page was particularly funny.

Grzegorz_ Yeah I have no job

And Poland's economy is still strong and the government popular. Jobwise, you should think about going to England - plenty of Poles have and Poland's EU membership means you now can. That or start up a business - there are EU subsidies available that could help you.

Remember Grzegorz, joblessness isn't such a bleak prospect as it was under the PiS regime - you are lucky to live in a country whose economy is in safe hands.

Grow

Yes, the economy is growing. Thanks in very large part to the safe stewardship of the current administration who look likely to be given an unprecedented second term.

That suits the Funniest PS thread, especially about a teacher. :):):):)

=Grzegorz_]I will only suggest you to read what people like Krzysztof Rybiński are thinking about the situation of Poland.

The one who thinks will make a career again by critisizing Tusk? I know this guy, listened to a few interviews. He used to hold important posts in the past, like vise president of a major Polish bank. Today he is only a head of a private university of economy, created in 1996. What a degradation. That is why he is very frustrated.

I am glad you had a laugh. :):):) Can I call myself a doctor? :):):)

Thankfully Poland's economy has one half of the Ron Jeremy formula. There is boom but, thankfully, no bust. That's the British model :)

Watch this video:

Thanx Jozef good video. I liked it how the young educated Poles said that they only think of going to the west for vacation and want to remain in Poland give something back to the country that educated them for free. btw lovely Polish girls at 23:12 you know I couldn't miss that ;)

It's also partially economic - many Polish employers are now realising that "two years washing dishes in the UK" is actually worthless when it comes to employability - many of them preferring to hire people straight from university. Now that the wages aren't so hugely different, it seems that anyone educated and with half a chance in life is staying rather than moving.

Take a look at this though - for me, this is the Poland I know -
...

(everyone - if you believe in Poland today, watch this video)

Haha, any clown could run a private university. And they do - I even spotted that one has opened up in a small (population : 30k) town here!

You are pathetic, I'm not going to waste any more time educating you... I will only suggest you to read what people like Krzysztof Rybiński are thinking about the situation of Poland.

Educating me? You couldn't educate a thing - all you see is doom and gloom, not a good quality in a teacher. And quite frankly - what makes the boss of a "higher school" (not a university!) worth listening to about economics? I mean, if he was any good, he'd be working in a real university.

Yes, the economy is growing. Thanks in very large part to the safe stewardship of the current administration who look likely to be given an unprecedented second term.

And it's driving them crazy. Great fun - I can't wait until the election, just to rub it in even more.

That really means nothing - it could be as simple as people were rushing to put their money through the books before EU entry, or that people were spending big money before EU entry in order to avoid price rises post-EU entry. It's meaningless.

Perhaps though, look at the benefit at the border.

30th April 2004 saw queues at Swiecko for trucks of up to 24 hours.
1st May 2004 saw hardly any queues.

Indeed. The same as the whole "green island" nonsense. But of course you won't agree with it as that would be in opposition to PO's "we saved Poland from the crisis" propaganda.

Watch this video:

The speaker is very drab, his monotone voice sends me to sleep.

It focuses on the positive, call it prapaganda if you want but that doesn'make it so.

Have a look at this one, again it focuses on the possitive but hey, we can't all moan and groan....can we? ;)

When I was recently in Warsaw I didn't see any particular booming.The reason Poland is doing well during crisis is that they didn't borrow much and the reason they didn't borrow much was the lack of investments.So there was no bubble to blow.Also the lack of immigrants and the funds coming from Poles working abroad to support their families(also Polki funds just kidding) play an important role as transfusion of money to increase consumption.

Sorry to say lads but the 67,28 billion Euro from European Union for the years 2007-2013 to help develope the infrastructure and businesses is helping Poland immensely. Poland has come on leaps and bounds over the past ten years I have known her.

And with the proposed €80 billion for Poland new EU budget it's likely to keep going. At least Poland is using the money the way the E.U. needs it, rather than like some countries I could mention.

it focuses on the possitive but hey, we can't all moan and groan....can we? ;)

Well of course some of us can :)

Nice video. Not so sure about the guy smashing that glass on his head though.
That Muller guy seems like a real character. 4 more years of steady as she goes government from PO and keeping those PIS nutters from power should help improve things.

Could the makers not have done the exact opposite as well i.e. find people completely on the down and out or business failures, or frustrated journalism and economics post graduates?

What I mean is, simply reporting on the positives (and it's nice to see it being done) should not be understood to mean those stories are indicative of the majority of the country.
