Yates won the last, 136 km, leg of the race, which ended in Bukowina Tatrzańska, southern Poland, on Friday.
Kwiatkowski, a former world champion, won stages four and five of this year's Tour de Pologne, which was held for the 75th time.
The Polish rider in March won the weeklong Tirreno-Adriatico race in Italy.
