The position of U.S.-owned companies in Poland is the result of a long history of investments, and the expansion of American business in the country. The investment climate in Poland is assessed rather positively by American companies, both in terms of macroeconomic and institutional factors. American companies link their long-term plans with the Polish market by taking advantage of the competitiveness of the Polish economy and its human resources.

The report presents the most recent development plans of American entrepreneurs in Poland through a three-year perspective with a forecast of the investment climate in the country.
