The size of investments in Lower Silesia

In 2017 the amount of investments in our voivodeship was very impressive. For example, the biggest, in the last 15 years in Poland, construction project in Kobierzyce and the first factory of electrical car batteries for the Korean LG Chen consortium in this part of the world were created here. Its value is over one billion euros. There have also been other big investors, such as Daimler in Jawor or multiple Toyota factories dedicated to the auto-moto sector. Our region has also won the battle for the Lufthansa and General Electric consortium in Środa Śląska, where currently the biggest aircraft engine shop (for the newest Boeings used by Lufthansa) in this part of Europe is being built. Another investor is the American internet sales giant  – Amazon, which now has a logistic centre located right next to Wrocław.

Connected to all of Europe

An important factor for the region’s development is a well-functioning and convenient transport system. The road structure is one of the strongest advantages of the voivodeship. The key element of our transport system is being a part of the Berlin – Dresden – Wrocław – Katowice – Przemyśl – Lviv – Kiev route. By the year 2020 there will be more important roads built here, for example part of the Szczecin – Wrocław – Prague route. Rail, air and water transport connects us with all of Europe. When it comes to being attractive to investors, efficient transportation along with a very convenient location between Germany and Russia make Lower Silesia a leader not just in Poland. It also places quite high compared to other EU regions – it’s number 100 out of 275.
