Abstract: The aim of this study was to examine the motives of foreign direct investment (FDI) of Polish enterprises. Our studies have confirmed that the market seeking and – to a lesser extent – resource seeking motives are most important for Polish companies investing abroad. The search for efficiency is still not as significant as above factors. The study also shown the importance of geographical distance – this is reflected by concentration of Polish FDI in neighboring countries. We also identified the differences in motives to invest across various sectors and equity based entry modes.
