Since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Poland’s economy has emerged as one of the most successful of the former-Eastern Bloc states. Seeing continued growth for the last 28 years, it was one of the only EU states to avoid a downturn during the 2007-2008 recession.
As the 6th-largest economy in Europe, Poland’s diversified nature enables it to be a top exporter of machinery, electronic equipment, vehicles, furniture and plastics, making it a key supplier to markets worldwide.

The Polish language has been used by the majority of Poland’s population for centuries. This Slavonic language belongs to a subgroup called Lechitic languages that also includes Czech and Slovak, and the Sorbian languages from eastern Germany.
The modern written form was first used in the 16th century during which time its origin can be traced back to the Poznań area. Nowadays, this dialect has become the standard form, known by locals as Polonia.

Nearby countries including the Czech Republic, Belarus, Ukraine, Lithuania, Hungary and Slovakia also have sizable first-language Polish minorities, and there are large Polish communities further afield in the USA and UK due to migration after World War II.

Traditionally, Poland’s key industries were agriculture, manufacturing and mining, however over the last decade, the landscape has diversified significantly.
