The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung daily noted that the Polish authorities were actively encouraging Poles to return home.
"In 2019, the Polish economy grew 4 percent. The previous year it grew over 5 percent. Unemployment… is lower than the EU average. In some sectors, there is a shortage of staff," the daily said.
It noted that after winning parliamentary election in 2015, the conservative Law and Justice (PiS) government introduced popular child benefits known as “500 Plus”, and launched a housing programme aimed at the lower middle class.
"All this contributes to re-emigration: the economic and social situation in Poland has improved, new opportunities have emerged. Above all, there are many job offers in large cities that are better paid than unskilled jobs in the UK," the paper added.
But it said a big obstacle to Poles returning to their home country, especially young people, was the number of “junk” job contracts, the highest in the EU.
