The results of the survey also show that foreign investors are satisfied with providing business activity in Poland. 95% of them describe the conditions of their company as good, “It is worth stressing that 96% of companies would choose Poland as investment location again”, adds Michael Kern managing director of AHK.

As previously, among the biggest investment assets of Poland - except being the Member State of the EU - is human capital including high qualifications, productivity and motivation of Polish employees. Investors also appreciate the high level of academic education in Poland. Companies present at the AHK conference agreed that the quality becomes a synonymous of workforce in Poland, and due to that growing costs of employment is one of the most spectacular achievements of the Poles. Poland also gets good notes for political stability and the improvement of infrastructure. Investors are also impressed by the programme of the improvement of vocational training in the country.

Let us join eurozone as soon as possible! There are more benefits than disadvantages.
According to Janusz Lewandowski the decision whether Poland will join the euro area may already be taken in spring. Tadeusz Mosz has no doubts about the necessity of joining the eurozone by Poland and he also believes that the country should do this as soon as possible, although not all of the formal conditions are complied yet. During an interview recorded by TOK FM, the chief noted that even though Poland does not comply with all the conditions, it should negotiate them.
One of the reasons of the downturn in economy growth is the drop in internal consumption. Polish society is getting poorer and people can afford less and less. In the meantime, according to the latest information the growth of salaries of the board of directors in join-stock companies in 2011 increased in 18%, and the growth of salaries of these companies’ chairmen increased in 20 percent. Apparently, there is no social solidarity in Poland. Social differentiation is slowly and systematically deepening. According to data from 2008 – 20 percent of the richest part of Polish society is 5,1 times richer than 20 percent of the poorest part of this country. If we take into consideration data relating to the growth of salaries, the increase in disproportion will be more obvious.
