On September 27, 2013 the Kosciuszko Foundation Economic Conference took place at the New York City headquarters of the Kosciuszko Foundation. “The Polish Phenomenon: What’s Next for Europe’s New Powerhouse?” was sponsored by the Kosciuszko Foundation and the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
“Polish workers used to travel abroad to where the factories were,” said Alex Storozynski, President and Executive Director of the Kosciuszko Foundation. “These days, factories move to where the Polish workers are.”
Marek Belka, President of the National Bank of Poland, served as keynote speaker at the conference. Belka attributed the resilience of the Polish economy to “balanced economic growth, floating exchange rate, stable current account balance, flexible labor market, well-capitalized banking sector and public investments.”
On November 1, 3013 the Kosciuszko Foundation published a report about the conference proceedings.
