Approximately 250,000 Poles living in the UK will return to their home country over the next few years because of Brexit, Poland’s Deputy Prime Minister and Development Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said during his business visit to London.
“I believe there will be many people coming back. I don’t know how many but apparently there are some 900,000 now in Great Britain. I think a couple of hundred thousand may come back over the next 5-10 years,” the Minister proclaimed.
Morawiecki mentioned that Poland now has a very low level of unemployment, a highly educated workforce and “businesses growth like nowhere in Europe,” thus these factors will also persuade a quarter of Poles in Britain to return.
During this visit, Mateusz Morawiecki is to meet with management of the Royal Bank of Scotland, UBS, Barclays, BNP Paribas, Citibank and Credit Suisse, as well as directors of Schroders, Pimco and BlackRock, in order to attract foreign investors to Poland’s market.
