ABSTRACT
The presented article attempts to assess the competitiveness of foreign trade in fur skins and their products in Poland at the background of the European Union countries between 2005 and 2016. The data used for the research came from the statistical yearbooks of the Central Statistical Office, and the study was supported by methods of descriptive and comparative analysis. It also used the data of the International Trade Center (ITC) and Faostat database. The results of the research confirmed that Poland has a competitive advantage in foreign trade in fur skins and their products in 2005 and in 2008-2011 and 2013-2016. In addition, Poland recorded one of the highest trade coverage ratios between 2010 and 2017 among the EU countries. It was found that, recently, Poland noted one of the fastest rates of competitive advantage in this respect, and the concentration of production in Poland may strengthen its role in the international arena, and have more and more impact on the economic situation of producers operating in the industry.
