In the entire 2012, the net inflow of FDI to Poland was EUR 2,864mn vs. EUR 13,564mn in 2011.

In August of 2013, negative foreign portfolio investment in Poland amounted to EUR 389mn. NBP attributes this balance mainly to non-resident withdrawal from investment in debt securities (EUR 957mn) - mostly form Treasury bonds issued on domestic market. An increase in investment, on the other hand, was reported for equity securities (EUR 568mn).

NBP also reported that the balance of other non-resident investment in Poland was positive and stood at EUR 553mn in August. This item has been mostly influenced by an increase in NBP's liabilities by EUR 692mn and of the banking sector's liabilities - by EUR 280,m (increase in deposits of non-residents), and a decrease in liabilities of the enterprise sector (by EUR 409mn - mostly as a result of trade credits) and of the central government (by EUR 10mn).
