Summary/Abstract: Africa is rising, and attracting investment flows from around the world—particularly from emerging markets. Despite some ongoing risks, the investment climate is improving, and returns on investments can be substantial. Polish companies, whose trade and investments focus almost exclusively on the EU, would do well to explore Sub-Saharan markets, particularly in countries with a Polish presence and which display political stability, economic growth, and an attractive investment climate. Promising sectors for Polish investment include natural resource extraction, infrastructure, ICT, agriculture and services. In order to boost Polish investment in Africa, Poland’s government should optimise its presence on the continent and extend its existing economic programmes there. Polish companies should establish a physical presence, seek out investment niches, get to know the African investment climate and adapt to local specificities.
