With a land area of about 313,000 square kilometres, Poland is the sixth-largest country in the European Union. Its population of about 38.5 million represents the third-largest consumer market in Eastern Europe. The Polish economy has undergone a remarkable development since its transition to democracy. The government is continuing to pursue a course of liberalisation and deregulation, which includes the privatisation of government companies. This now makes the country a major sales market and manufacturing site for foreign businesses. In recent years, Poland has consistently registered positive growth.
