Report on the condition of SME in Poland in 2008-2009 (EN)
Autor: Aneta Wilmańska

The Polish Agency for Enterprise Development (PAED) celebrates its tenth anniversary this year. Over this time the Agency has successfully supported entrepreneurs in completion of projects related to the development and implementation of new technologies, development of human resources and development of foreign cooperation, which are all aimed at improving innovativeness and efficiency. The scale of support we have offered is reflected by the fact that in this period the Agency has concluded nearly 12 thousand support agreements for the amount of nearly PLN 8 billion, while over half a million workers have taken part in training courses and post-graduate studies co-financed from PAED resources. These actions, resulting in the improved competitive position of the economy, are mostly addressed to small and medium-sized enterprises. Support for SMEs, the Agency is focused upon, reflects the role they play in the Polish economy. SMEs sector is not only the most numerous group of companies in Poland, but also a significant employer, employing over 60% of enterprise workers in Poland and generating nearly a half of Polish GDP. This sector has considerably developed in the recent 10 years. The number of SMEs has grown by nearly 100 thousand, whereas the number of SMEs workers has grown by almost 750 thousand persons. Significance of this sector for the development of economy and social welfare is a key issue, while its growth rate indicates that this will be the case also in the future.
