Polish companies have the greatest drive to invest since the beginning of the global crisis in 2008. Optimistic macro-economic data is not the only sign of economic revival. Companies are also willing to invest as much as before the crisis, especially when it comes to purchasing technology, according to Puls Biznesu. This is based on research undertaken by Grant Thornton, who claims that the proportion of Polish companies willing to increase investment in technology has grown from 24 percent to 58 percent in the last three months and is the highest since 2008. “The last time companies were so eager to invest was before the global crisis,” says Tomasz Wróblewski, a Grant Thornton associate in Poland, “This is very good news,” claims Wróblewski, adding also that businessmen are finally starting to believe that the revival is here to stay and it is time to prepare for growing sales. Compared to the 16 other countries of the EU that also took part in the research, Poland has the highest rate of companies willing to invest in technology. On a larger scale, when compared to 45 other countries from the whole world, Poland came fifth after Georgia, Russia, Peru and Argentina.
