MetadataShow full item record
The aim of the paper is to shortly assess changes in global value chains in Poland since mid-90s. Transformation, accession to the European Union and foreign investment have conversed Polish economy and trade. In addition, globalization and revolution in the global economy not only affected adjustment in global value chains (GVCs) but also formed new positions of countries within them. As a result of marketization, Poland has become an open economy which is increasingly involved in world trade. To illustrate a shift in polish participation in global value chains data from the Trade in Value Added database (TiVA) was used. The research results show that over the past 20 years, Poland has been opening up to the global economy. The importance of foreign value added in exports increased, and the position of Poland in GVC shifted down along the production chain.
