POLAND COMPETITIVENESS REPORT 2014 A Decade in the European Union
POLAND COMPETITIVENESS REPORT 2014 A Decade in the European Union

How does the Polish economy fare compared with other economies in the European Union? Has the country made the kind of progress during its fi rst 10 years in the EU that many Poles dreamed of when Poland joined the bloc in May 2004? To what extent has EU membership made Poland more competitive internationally and helped it advance from resource-based to knowledge-based competitiveness? This book aims to fi nd answers to these questions and determine how competitive Poland is in the European Union a decade after it joined the bloc. The Polish economy is shown in a broader comparative perspective against the background of other EU members.

The analyses in this book go beyond a simple scoreboard approach that could fail to capture all structural factors. The country comparisons are conducted in both quantitative and qualitative terms, enabling the authors to forecast future trends and indicate policy priorities.

This new monograph presents the results of the latest comparative studies conducted by the World Economy Research Institute at the Warsaw School of Economics. The book aims to determine Poland's competitive position in the European Union 10 years after the country's entry into the bloc. The Polish economy is shown in a broader comparative perspective against the background of other EU members, in particular the 11 new member states from Central and Eastern Europe (EU11). Competitiveness is defined for the purposes of these analyses as a country's ability to achieve a sustainable improvement in the quality of life, accompanied by a strengthening of the country's economic position on foreign markets and by an increase in its investment attractiveness. This definition provides a general framework for assessing various economic and social issues that make up the competitive position of the Polish economy.

Analyses carried out in this book go beyond a simple scoreboard approach that could fail to capture all structural factors. Developing effective policies requires an in?depth understanding of the complex factors that drive the competitiveness of economies. Therefore, a systematic approach has been adopted enabling comparisons of various determinants of Poland's competitive position. The cross-country comparison is conducted in both quantitative and qualitative terms, which allows the authors to forecast future trends and indicate some policy priorities.

The book consists of three parts, further divided into chapters, each with a numer of subsections. The first part (Chapters 1-2) aims to show the development of Poland's competitive position during the first decade of its EU membership. The assessment consists of two complementary components: the nation's prosperity and its position versus external partners compared with other new EU member states. The starting point is an analysis of the nation's prosperity measured by its overall economic performance, the real income of the Polish population and the capacity to increase this income. This is followed by an assessment of Poland's competitive position in external relations. A comparison of Poland's economic performance in the 2004-2013 period with results achieved by other EU countries includes an analysis of real GDP growth, convergence of income levels in Poland in relation to the EU15, and an assessment of the scale of income inequality and poverty (Chapter 1). The international competitiveness of the Polish economy is reflected in changes in the country's role in world trade and in international investment flows (Chapter 2).

The aim of Part II (Chapters 3-4) is to identify the main factors determining changes in the competitive position of the Polish economy in the past decade. Competitive position determinants were divided into two groups: (1) assets such as capital, labor, and technology, including changes in their productivity; and (2) institutions and their quality, including economic policy. Detailed characteristics of each of these factors are complemented with an attempt to establish their role in shaping the competitiveness of the Polish economy in the first 10 years of Poland's EU membership.

The third part of the book (Chapters 5-6) focuses on the impact of Poland joining the EU on the country's competitiveness. This analysis is not limited to identifying changes in competitiveness, but also shows Poland's role in shaping common market rules, including EU policies. When it comes to the EU's influence on Poland's competitiveness, we discuss the position of its enterprises in European value chains and the evolution of its innovation policy in the context of EU policies. We also focus on the importance of EU funds to the competitiveness of the Polish economy and on the transformation of Poland's energy market as a result of EU policies (Chapter 5).

Looking at Poland's contribution to European integration, we focus on two key factors, namely on the achievements of the Polish presidency of the EU Council and on Poland's role in developing the European Union's Eastern Partnership initiative (Chapter 6).

Conclusions from the analysis of specific issues are included at the end of each subsection. They are the basis for an overall assessment of Poland's competitive position in the European Union at the beginning of 2014. The assessment is made at the end of this book, along with some tentative conclusions for economic policy in the context of the EU's flagship Europe 2020 strategy.
