Regional Determinants of FDI Distribution in Poland

Agnieszka Chidlow () and Stephen Young ()

No wp943, William Davidson Institute Working Papers Series from William Davidson Institute at the University of Michigan

Abstract: In this paper we examine the location determinants of the inflow of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) into Poland, at a regional level. Using survey data from an online questionnaire in February 2005 and a multinomial logit model incorporating the investor’s specific characteristics, we show that knowledge-seeking factors alongside market and agglomeration factors, act as the main drivers for the inflow of FDI to the Mazowieckie region (including Warsaw), while efficiency and geographical factors encourage FDI to the other areas of Poland. Some implications are drawn for FDI attraction policy in Poland.
