OECD Releases Report on Poland’s Economy

OECD (http://www.oecd.org)

The OECD released its biannual report on Poland’s economy on March 19 with input from all OECD members, including the United States.  It highlights Poland’s strong economic fundamentals, and encourages Poland to improve innovation and the future labor market performance as key tasks to ensure continued growth.  U.S. Embassy Warsaw plays a key role in supporting U.S. Foreign Direct Investment and U.S. – Poland bilateral trade – an important part of this success story.  U.S. companies employ over 200,000 Poles and support even more jobs indirectly, and U.S. companies have invested over $42 billion in Poland.  The U.S. Mission to Poland supports many programs to spur innovation and entrepreneurial development, such as the Bridge to MassChallenge Warsaw competition for start-ups, the SelectUSA conference, Polish-American Innovation Bridge (PAMI), the Tech Leaders Mentoring Program for Women, and the recent Smart Cities Summit.
