Despite the recent world economic recession, Poland maintained its economic growth levels and stability, which made it the only European country that didn’t show a drop in its GDP.

These positive results are due to the increase in its exports levels that reached 143.4 billion euros last year, marking a 4.9 percent growth compared to 2011 results. Polish companies are striving to boost their presence in new and growing markets and achieve similar success and leadership as in their local market.
