American investments in Poland top $40 bln

The value of direct American investments in Poland exceeds $40 billion, according to Tony Housh, head of the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Poland. He adds that US firms are planning several major new investment projects in this country.

American companies play an important role in research and development, as well as in the automotive, pharmaceutical, computer and ICT sectors. “There are significant investments in these sectors. Over 40,000 specialists work in companies belonging to AmCham, in the R & D sector, information technology, programming,” Housh said.

In Housh’s opinion, the legal environment for foreign investors in Poland is good, having undergone many changes since the country entered the European Union. He points out that the court system is now more effective and works faster, which is something that investors pay attention to.
