Determinants of FDI Flows within Emerging Economies provides a detailed examination of foreign direct investment (FDI) in Poland and explores the impact this has on foreign investment policy. It analyzes and identifies the location patterns of FDI across different regions in Poland and strives to determine the supporting motives behind location choices of foreign companies. The study also identifies the leading foreign firms present in Poland and examines whether their presence has an effect on the location choices of smaller foreign firms from the same industry.

A revealed location advantage (RLA) model is used to determine relative industrial concentration of foreign firms across Polish regions. Furthermore, statistical analysis between RLA index is used to measure the degree of industrial specialization (across industries) in each region. In addition, relevant local economic factors such as: market size, labor pool and skill, amount of FDI, regional GDP, and the investment in R and D, are used to determine the relationships that support the attraction of foreign firms to particular regions.
