Germany received 35% of votes in this poll, followed by Poland with 10% of votes (Britain received 8% of votes, Russia - 7%, France - 4%, the Czech Republic and Romania - 3% each). In the eyes of investors, Poland's strengths include: large and absorptive market, highly qualified workforce, stable macroeconomic fundamentals at a time of crisis, low level of public debt compared to Western European countries, stable legal system, a country seen as welcoming both production-oriented projects and BPO centers. According to the survey, in the entire Europe, inward investment projects increased by 4% y/y in 2011 and totaled significantly more than pre-crisis levels. At the same time, FDI job creation surged 15% and the share of Europe's global FDI inflows increased from 26.9% to 28.2%.
