The Polish Mining Industry Outlook – Market Opportunities and Entry Strategies, Analyses and Forecasts to 2016
Poland has a large base of mineral resources and a rich mining tradition. The Polish mining industry contributes 2% of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP), and the country is the largest producer of copper and coal in Europe. Structural changes made to privatize the country’s coal sector, such as provision of subsidies and closure of unprofitable mines, have had an adverse impact on the industry, with a decline in total production and an increase in imports. The disinvestment process is a key element in the country’s transition from a planned economy to a market economy, and is a major factor in creating opportunities for foreign investors to acquire businesses in Poland.
