    On Monday, 24 September 2018, to mark the reclassification of Poland to developed market status, the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in London and the Warsaw Stock Exchange (GPW) hosted representatives of the largest Polish state companies, banks and financial institutions.

     

    Welcoming the guests at the Embassy, Deputy Head of Mission Agnieszka Kowalska said: “I believe that the reclassification will help talk more often about the Polish success of 26 years of consecutive economic growth.

     

    “This success is evidenced by the increasing recognition by British business and media of the opportunities that the Polish economy offers. Above all, however, this success confirms the ever-growing presence of Polish companies in this country, both the 30,000 companies headed by Poles and the new investments of companies from Poland,” said the Deputy Head of Mission. She reassured the guests that regardless of the final deal on Brexit “Great Britain will always remain our important partner and will always offer opportunities of business development.”

     

    The event attracted CEOs and VPs of GPW, Pekao Bank, PZU, PKO BP, Central Securities Depository of Poland and the Polish Development Fund.

     

    On 24 September 2018, the global index agency FTSE Russell reclassified Poland from emerging market to the prestigious developed market status. This change was marked during Monday’s market opening ceremony at the London Stock Exchange in the presence of the representatives of Polish groups.

     

    Thanks to the promotion, Poland has joined the group of 25 most developed global economies which includes the United States, Great Britain, Germany, France, Japan and Australia.
