Located in the heart of Central Europe, Poland is a dynamic and the largest single market among the ‘new’ European Union (EU) states. With an estimated GDP of US$ 688 billion (2022), Poland is the EU’s sixth largest economy. Service sector leads the Poland’s economy followed by industry and agriculture.

Poland’s large customer base, high investments in infrastructure, growing demand for innovations and new technologies, skilled workforce and comparatively low labour and investment costs makes the country one of the most attractive destinations for foreign investors. Poland holds a significant position as India's primary trade partner and export destination within Central Europe, witnessing a remarkable surge in bilateral trade over the past decade, with trade volumes expanding almost sevenfold.


  • India and Poland enjoy a robust trade relationship, witnessing exceptional growth in the last ten years.
  • In 2019 alone, bilateral trade between the two countries reached a notable USD 2.36 billion. Notably, India's exports to Poland accounted for 0.48% of its total exports, while Poland's share in India's imports amounted to 0.15%.
  • India has made substantial investments in Poland, totalling over USD 3 billion, with notable contributions from companies such as ArcelorMittal, Videocon, Escorts, and Ranbaxy.
  • Conversely, Polish investment in India stands at an estimated USD 672 million, with key players like TZMO S.A., CanPack, and Famur making significant inroads into the Indian market.  
  • Collaboration between India and Poland extends across various sectors including agriculture and food processing, textile, energy, pharmaceutical, Information Technology, and chemicals, promising lucrative opportunities for mutual growth and benefit.  


Indian companies operating in Poland benefit from the country's strategic positioning within Europe, offering convenient access to the wider European market. Poland's robust and growing economy, characterized by stable GDP growth and increasing consumer demand, provides favourable conditions for business expansion and investment. Additionally, Poland's well-educated workforce, modern infrastructure, and supportive business environment further enhance the attractiveness of the market for Indian enterprises. With incentives for foreign investment and a favourable regulatory framework, Poland serves as an advantageous destination for Indian companies looking to establish a foothold in Europe and capitalize on the region's diverse market opportunities.


Poland provides a range of incentives and support programs aimed at attracting and facilitating investment by Indian companies.

  • Special Economic Zones (SEZs) offer tax breaks and other benefits to foreign investors. These zones provide reduced corporate income tax rates, exemptions from customs duties, and streamlined administrative procedures, making them attractive locations for Indian businesses to establish or expand their operations.
  • Polish government offers investment grants and subsidies to support foreign companies, including those from India, in various sectors. These grants may cover expenses related to land purchase, construction, machinery, and equipment acquisition.
  • Poland provides Research and Development (R&D) grants to encourage innovation and technology transfer, with Indian companies engaged in R&D activities eligible for financial assistance.
  • Regional aid programs are also available to promote investment in specific regions facing socio-economic challenges.
  • Poland has established business incubators and accelerators to support the growth of start-ups and innovative enterprises. Indian start-ups looking to enter the Polish market can benefit from mentoring, networking opportunities, and access to funding sources through these programs.


  • Select a unique name for the business that complies with Polish regulations.
  • Determine the most suitable form of business entity.
  • Gather all necessary documentation and register the company with the National Court Register (KRS)
  • Obtain a Tax Identification Number (NIP) and Statistical Number (REGON) from the relevant authorities.
