Polish-German trade relations are highly asymmetrical. While Germany’s final demand generates almost 10 percent of Poland’s GDP, Poland’s final demand only generates 1 percent of Germany’s. Yet Germany and Poland have established a salient network of supply chains whose importance is growing. Furthermore, Germany’s investments make up 20 percent of FDI in Poland – 5 percent more than 10 years ago. Although the current economic slowdown and energy crisis pose challenges that will affect trade and investment flows between the two partners, Poland’s decoupling from Russia might create opportunities for them as well.
