Entrepreneurship in Poland
Polish companies have improved their financial results. Running a business activity in Poland is becoming easier thanks to tools available on the Internet. The latest report published by the Ministry of Economy is more than just a praise of Polish companies. Its authors have also prepared a number of recommendations regarding further actions aimed at supporting business.
Published annually since 2003, the report entitled “Entrepreneurship in Poland” analyses the entrepreneurship in our country and proposes actions that the Ministry of Economy should undertake in order to support Polish companies.
According to the report, in 2010 Polish companies recorded a 14.5% growth in their financial results, which amounts to PLN 132 billion. “We are glad that despite economic difficulties Polish companies managed to generate a financial surplus” — said Deputy Prime Minister Waldemar Pawlak summing up the report. He also pointed to the fact that more companies were created in Poland last year than in the previous years. This is the best result in 10 years”.
Waldemar Pawlak — Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy — stressed that such good results can be attributed to the flexibility of Polish enterprises, as well as actions undertaken by the Ministry in recent years. “In 2010, we consistently worked toward simplifying the economic law by doing away with administrative obligations imposed on entrepreneurs. A continuation of these efforts in 2011 has been the passing of a deregulation act, as well as introduction of a possibility to register a business activity via the Internet” — said Pawlak.
The conclusions of the Ministry of Economy report confirm the necessity to introduce changes into the regulations governing the running of an economic activity, such as elimination of excess administrative obligations or simplification of the tax system. The report also points to low availability of capital and insufficient internationalization of companies.
