By bne IntelliNews September 10, 2010
Poland has risen seven places to 39th place in the World Economic Forum's Global Competitiveness Index (GCI) rankings. "This significant improvement for a second year in a row reflects the country's relatively stronger resistance to the economic crisis as a result of more prudent economic policies and its growing domestic market size," the WEF's report reads. The Forum stresses that Poland displays fairly even performance across all 12 pillars of competitiveness . Notable strengths include its large market size (21st) and high educational standards, in particular its high enrolment rates (18th). The financial sector is well developed (32nd), and the increased confidence in the banking sector (18th) has contributed to Poland's very good performance over the past years, the report continues. tom
