Summary/Abstract: The article contributes to the debate about the presence of Polish business representations in the EU lobbying arena. On the basis of literature, data gathered in the EU transparency (lobbying) register and expert interviews, the article aims to illustrate and evaluate the scope of involvement and the sphere of influence of Polish business representations in the European Union’s institutional and decision-making system. The results of the analysis confirm that even if both quality and quantity of Polish business representations have improved over recent years, the overall picture is still not satisfactory, especially given Poland’s population and aspirations to play a leading role in the EU.
