More Poles Emigrate
According to the September 2, 2012 English edition of the Warsaw Business Journal, Poland may be growing more than its counterparts in the Euro Zone, but that apparently hasn't lessened many Poles' fears that as the slowdown bites Europe harder, they will find it more difficult getting ahead in Poland. Young, educated Poles are leaving for the UK, Germany, the Netherlands and Norway, where salaries are far higher than in Poland. Experts estimate that some 2.5 million Poles may now be living permanently abroad.
The Germans are coming back to Poland
Poland has become one of the favourite places where Germans relocate permanently. In 2006, Poland ranked fifth among such countries, and today more Germans settle in Poland than in Spain or France. According to the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis), 9,434 German passport holders settled in Poland only last year, making Poland the third most popular destination for Germans relocating abroad, now ahead of Austria and behind only Switzerland and the United States.

POLES ABROAD UPDATE: An estimated 2.3 million Poles are now working abroad as migrants. As a result Poland's true Poland's true population has dripped from over 38 million at the start of the century to about 36 million at present. The most live and work in Britain (685,000), Germany (614,000), Ireland (113,000), Norway (79,000), France (63,000) and Sweden (43,000).
