In 2016, Canadian merchandise exports to Poland amounted to almost CAD 616 mn making it the 10th largest export market in the EU. In the medium term, Canadian exports to Poland should get a boost with the coming into force of the Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement (CETA). Given the country’s sizable population of 38 mn and its growing middle class, interest in the Polish market is only likely to increase in the near future. From a sectorial perspective, EDC has historically seen most activity in the Aerospace, Agriculture, Automotive & Heavy Truck, Medical Technology and Devices and Computer Hardware industries. In addition to these sectors, we see strong opportunities for Canadian businesses in in the Construction & Infrastructure, Extractive, Environmental Infrastructure & Waste Water and Power sectors. It should also be noted that Poland has an accommodative business environment, ranking 36th out of 138 in the World Economic Forum’s recent Global Competitiveness Report making it an attractive location for investment.
