The book is mainly addressed to foreign students in Poland within the framework of exchange programmes. It could also be useful for remaining students of economic faculties as Polish students leaving Poland may have to communicate more frequently with foreigners and read texts in English so the handbook will allow them to talk about the Polish economy and its speci?city freely. English-speaking Poles can also be addressees of the book when trying to understand the Polish economy. The author hopes that the knowledge contained in this publication will help understand the characteristics of the Polish economy. This is especially important when preparing prognoses and analyses.
