Last year, Poland's position was 14th globally and 4th in Europe.

The leaders of the global ranking were China, followed by the United States and Indonesia. The highest-ranking European economy was Germany (6), followed by Russian Federation (10).

In Poland, FDI flows declined to minus USD 6.04bn in 2013 from plus 6.06bn in 2012 (and compared to peak of USD 20.62bn in 2011).
