Why Poland

SSESpecial Economic Zone £ód¼


Established in 1997, The £ód¼ Special Economic Zone covers the £ód¼ Voivodeship, part of the Mazowieckie Voivodeship and the eastern part of the Greater Poland Voivodeship. The zone is located at the intersection of two highways A1 (north-south) and A2 (east-west). There are two international airports located on the zone's territory (Warsaw and £ód¼) and an extensive cargo rail network, including the Poland-China railway connection (£ód¼-Chengdu) – these give the £odz Special Economic Zone a huge logistic potential. Its strategic location, access to well-educated employees, as well as tax incentives, have made the £ód¼ SEZ in recent years, among the world's leading zones, in the ranking prepared by the FDI Magazine (part of the Financial Times group).
