Foreign Direct Investment in the automotive industry in Poland

Katarzyna Barbara Witczyńska


The automotive industry is one of the branches with the highest degree of internationalization of production. The beginnings of the investment activities of automobile concerns, including Western Europe, in the new Member States date back to the early 1960s. The inflow of foreign direct investment to the automotive sector was widespread in the 1990s. The transition to a market economy was accompanied by growing demand for foreign capital with the change in ownership of industrial enterprises. The main form of inflow of FDI to Poland to the automotive sector, since the beginnings of the 90s was the takeover of existing industrial plants by foreign investors for their restructuring and joint ventures.
