Being aware of the present situation of Poland – the growing economy and constantly increasing export indicators* - it is difficult to admit that it was once a country tired of wars that made it weak. At present it is not only the most rapidly growing economy in Central Europe, but also among the European leaders regarding the development of successful IT projects, tells Rolands Petersons (Pētersons) (Latvia), Member of the Board of Norman Logistics Sp.zo.o.
Only within three decades the economy of Poland has been completely restored, it has avoided also global crises that considerably affected other European countries. “The miraculous growth of the economy of Poland has been visually pointed out in the review published by political reviewer Jan Cienski in politico.eu** . He studied in Poland in 1987, and he remembers the conditions of that period, and is aware of the situation now. He recalls that there was the deficit of goods at stores, as well as it was confusing to visit any canteens, where the menu was merely a decor, because, in the end, you had to order the only meal available. He emphasizes that present Poland is a completely different country, and it would be difficult to believe the changes, if he would experienced them himself,” comments Rolands Petersons.
Since 1989, when the country began the economic recovery process, the economy of Poland has increased its size three times. While the rest of Europe faced recession following the beginning of global crisis in 2008, the economy of Poland continued its growth. Following the accession to the European Union (EU) in 2004, Poland wisely and purposefully used the EU funds***, continuing its development.
