I agree.....import = coming into country
export = going out of country

energy, building supplies, german car radios.

Also, it exports aircraft engines (I know! Right?!)

Do you know which company? PZL used to make engines. I don't think anyone is making aircraft engines here now.

Pratt and Whitney also has offices here and I think contracts PZL to make the engines (especially for all those F-16s Poland just bought.)

As a matter of fact Poland is quite significant producer and world wide exporter of engines . Poland produces a variety of different engines . The mass production dates XIX century . However during the world war II the polish engine production was completely destroyed , a lot of famous polish construction engineers lost their lives during the war or emigrated after the war .

PZL Mielec is a renowned aircraft producer ( not only engine producer )

Nowadays the production line includes :

In a cooperation with Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation – PZL Mielec makes parts for UH-60M BLACK HAWK and make complete S70iTM BLACK HAWK exported world wide .

Besides that aircraft production there is a huge production of different types of engines for : cars, ships , army , production enterprises etc.

Cegielski - Poznań S.A. now named Wärtsilä Switzerland Ltd. in Poznań produces ship engines with capacity of 30000 kW, "PZL-WOLA" S.A. in Warsaw specialises in heavy engines for utility army vehicles, PZL Mielec sp. z o.o. - aircrafts and aircraft parts production, High Combustion Engines Enterprise - Andoria in Andrychow
