Foreign investors returning to Poland - press

The lifting of the lockdown measures have encouraged foreign investors to set up businesses in Poland, with 8.5 percent more such firms having been established in June compared to May, the Puls Biznesu daily writes in its weekend edition.

Quoting the National Court Register's data, the daily says 458 foreign companies were registered in Poland in June, which compares to 422 in May. The June figure is also 31 percent higher compared to April's low in the midst of the lockdown.

However, the June result is far from the high numbers seen before the pandemic. "In March, nearly 37 percent more foreign companies were set up in our country compared to June while the February figure was 45 percent bigger," the daily writes.

New foreign companies focus mainly on trade (19 percent), construction (16 percent) and transport (11.5 percent).
