This book presents the results of systematic comparative research conducted for more than 20 years at the World Economy Institute of the Warsaw School of Economics. This year's edition seeks to evaluate changes in the competitiveness of the Polish economy in 2012, at both the macroeconomic and regional levels. This assessment is the basis for a further in-depth analysis of factors influencing the competitive position of Poland and its regions between 2005 and 2012.

The international competitiveness of the economy is closely linked to the production of goods and services offered on foreign markets, as well as to the attractiveness of a country to foreign investors. Benefits derived from participation in the international division of labor are reflected in an improved level of citizens' welfare. Such a broad interpretation of competitiveness is used in this book to assess the current competitive position of Poland and its evolution over the past five years. This approach is a common part of many different definitions of competitiveness that can be found in the economic literature. Individual chapters of this book cover different aspects of competitiveness.

Furthermore, the key factors that determine competitiveness are analyzed in an attempt to look at both the current competitive position of the Polish economy and its ability to compete with other economies.

The Polish economy is compared with other European Union economies, in particular with those in Central and Eastern Europe (EU10). A wide range of quantitative and qualitative indicators was used in this comparative study. They include gross domestic product (GDP) growth, GDP per capita, income inequality and the poverty level as well as the growth and structure of foreign trade, revealed comparative advantages in trade and their changes over time, the size and growth of foreign direct investment (FDI), and the balance of payments. On the basis of these analyses, forecasts have been presented for changes in the competitiveness of the Polish economy in the coming years. Moreover, priorities have been indicated for pro-competitive economic policies.

This book consists of three parts, each divided into chapters. Part I (Chapters 1 and 2) is concerned with the competitive position of the Polish economy. It includes an assessment of changes in the development of the Polish economy measured by GDP growth and GDP per capita in relation to other EU countries. That is followed by a discussion of convergence vs. divergence trends as well as the level of income inequality and poverty. In addition to the macroeconomic research, development differences between Poland's regions are analyzed and their implications for income convergence or divergence are presented.

The international aspects of the competitive position of the Polish economy discussed in Chapter 2 include foreign trade performance, FDI inflow and outflow, and trends in Poland's balance of payments.

The second part of this book (Chapters 3 and 4) highlights factors that contributed to changes in the competitive position of the Polish economy in 2012. The determinants of the country's competitive position are grouped into two broad categories:

1) the availability of resources, such as labor, capital, technology and innovation as well as their productivity,

2) contextual factors, such as economic policy, financial markets and the overall business environment.

Chapters 3 and 4 focus on the detailed characteristics of each of these factors and their importance in shaping Poland's competitiveness in 2012.

The third part of this report (Chapters 5 and 6) looks at selected aspects of the competitiveness of Polish regions. The starting point for this analysis is a comparative assessment of the competitiveness of Polish regions in relation to other EU regions.

This evaluation is based on key development indicators, such as GDP, geographical concentration (reflected by the presence of industrial clusters in a region) and selected measures of exports and imports handled by Polish regions as well as indicators of innovation and investment attractiveness. European cohesion policy is mentioned here as a way to reduce disparities among Polish regions as well as minimize the gap between them and their counterparts in other EU countries and worldwide. The new paradigm of regional policy advanced by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is an opportunity for Polish regions. It involves the diffusion of growth effects from developed to underdeveloped regions.

These three parts of the book are followed by conclusions on the possible paths of Poland's development as well as pro-competitive economic policy choices for the 2014-2020 period.
