The links between the UK and Poland run deep. They are further reinforced by the size of the Polish diaspora living in the UK, which at around 900,000 is the UK’s largest foreign-born community, and makes Polish the second most spoken language in England. This, and the significant alignment of interests and values between the two countries, suggest the vital importance of maintaining close ties in the future.
Poland has been named the most business-friendly country in the Central European region, and Britain has successfully recognized that. According to a 2019 report from Deloitte, three out of four companies owned or co-owned by British investors planned to increase their investment outlays in Poland. Moreover, UK investors perceive Poland positively due to the “size of its economy and its growing integration with the global economy.”
