Poland and Ukraine are co-hosting the Euro 2012 football championship. The organisation of this prestigious tournament should highlight both countries’
progress since they shook off socialism about two decades ago. However, a dissection of Poland and Ukraine reveals another picture: that of a stable country with a resilient economy, moving fast towards the European centre one the one hand and a wobbly country with a troubled economy, ailing at Europe’s fringes on the other.
+ Balanced, resilient economy
+ Well-capitalised, liquid banking system
+ Stable, mature political framework
+ Important beneficiary of EU support
- Excessive red tape hampers business environment
- Exposed (through Germany) to potential eurocrisis escalation
+ (Dwindling) prospect of EU trade agreement
+ Cheap labour force
- Unsustainable external position
- Sizeable debt service falling due
- Weak, unreformed banking system
- Unstable political situation
