The bulk of Poland’s goods exports will continue to be bought by large European countries like Germany, France and the UK as a result of the EU single market. However, although they are likely to remain a small proportion of total exports, the most dynamic trade relations will be with emerging Asia. This is forecast to be the case both in the short term, as the Asian economy recovers from its recent slowdown. China is anticipated to displace the US’s position among Poland’s principal non-EU export destinations in the longer term.
