Paweł Kurtasz, President of the Board, PAIH about Polish-Japanese investment relations
Over 350 Japanese companies have contributed to the creation of approx. 53.000 jobs in Poland so far. They mainly have invested in such industries as automotive, e-mobility, pharmaceuticals and BSS/BPO. I am proud to say, the Polish Investment & Trade Agency has greatly helped to accomplish that. Throughout 20 years, PAIH supported 80 Japanese FDI projects valued at EUR 3 bn. They resulted with hiring some 20.000 Polish people. Last year, we managed to attract two major Japanese investment projects that are to create more than 1.000 jobs in BSS and machine industry. Such areas as energy sector, fintech and startup acceleration programs are among the most promising areas of Poland-Japan business cooperation.
