Abstract: Participation of a country in the European Union and hence the participation in the European single market, have obvious consequences for capital flows, including those in the most advanced form, i.e. foreign direct investment. Foreign direct investment is considered one of the major incentives of economic integration. Thus, this study reflects on the impact of EU membership on FDI inflows to Poland as an EU member and signals key priorities for further integration. The theoretical foundation of the study resides in the theses of the new theory of economic integration and the investment development path theory. The paper employs the descriptive approach and inductive reasoning. We highlight the benefits resulting from the position of Poland on the investment development path and indicate possible associated threats. Moreover, we discuss retrospective reflections, some of the prospects, and possible directions of action recommended to optimise the future benefits of hosting foreign investors.
