My quotes in the FT on Doing Business in Poland

Financial Times ran an article on June 14 on "New focus on central Europe’s business opportunities".

It has my following quotes:

“Poland is moving forward, but parts of the region are moving even faster, so Poland is no further ahead,” says Marcin Piatkowski, senior economist at the World Bank office in Warsaw. The office has been hired by the government to try to improve Poland’s business environment.

Changing the way value added tax is administered, or making it possible to register a company in a single office, may seem like dry subjects, but these changes are key to boosting the region’s productivity and returning to the faster growth rates seen before the economic crisis, says Mr Piatkowski.
