Long live Franco-Polish business champions

Poland is one of the largest and most important economic partners for France in Central and Eastern Europe. Our mutual economic relations have a long tradition and began long before Poland joined the European Union. France, according to the latest NBP data, is the second largest foreign investor, taking into account the origin of the parent company. There are nearly 1,100 companies with French capital. The cumulative value of French investments in Poland amounts to 88 billion zlotys (approx. 20 billion euros), and foreign companies provide more than a third of all investment spending in Poland. French companies created over 200,000 direct jobs and at least as many indirect ones – at suppliers, local partners, etc. Nearly 100% of all employees in companies with French capital in Poland are Poles and in most of them the leading positions on management boards are also held by Poles.

Sylwia Ziemacka from Poland Weekly talked to Joanna Jaroch-Pszeniczna, General Director of the French-Polish Chamber of Commerce.
