Poland Outbound - September 2009

As a former Soviet state, Poland has been making the slow and at times arduous transition to democracy. Government reforms have been makeshift and the implementation of privatisation initiatives has been painfully slow. Nonetheless it has been one of the most successful former Soviet satellites to institute both social and economic policy changes, stimulating foreign investment, which have in turn bolstered the country’s finances. Gross domestic product (GDP) has grown steadily in the last decade, facilitated by a strengthening currency and increasing consumer confidence.
