Report “Polish Investment Zone”
The Polish Investment Zone (PSI) is an opportunity for small and medium enterprises (SME). More than a year has passed since the entry in force of the act on support for new investments. The main goal of the act was to bring all investment land in the country into the single PSI. The introduction of the PSI has shown that the zone privileges are within the reach of the SME and obtaining zone support has become much easier. What's important is that thanks to new legislation entrepreneurs do not need to concentrate their investments in specific parts of Poland, rather they can choose locations they consider best for their businesses. The „Polish Investment Zone” report includes details of the changes introduced in the 2018 act, the experiences of enterprises that have already benefited from support on the new terms, the benefits and challenges of doing business with SEZ support. The report was written in collaboration between Colliers International, EY and the Polish Investment and Trade Agency. More »
