Poland’s government has decided to expand the area of two of the country’s special economic zones, the Chancellery of the Prime Minister said. The EURO-PARK Mielec Special Economic Zone will be expanded by 53.4 hectares and the Kostrzyn-Słubice Special Economic Zone will have 114.9 more hectares of land. The government expects the move to generate extra investment of zł.1.7 billion and 6,800 new jobs.
“In order to help economic recovery, as well as to create new workplaces, [the government] has decided to expand the Kostrzyn-Słubice SEZ by 114.9 ha of land attractive to investors,” the chancellery said in a statement and added that thanks to the expansion “an estimated 4,000 jobs will be created within the zone and about 827 outside it. Investment outlays will amount to some zł.971 million.”
The chancellery also said that some of the planned investments in the new areas of the Mielec SEZ have already been announced. Resins and construction chemicals producer Lerg-Chem will invest zł.90 million and create at least 80 new jobs, while construction firm KSO will build a production plant for large steel elements used in windmills, which will be worth zł.298 million and will create at least 451 jobs.
The new regulations are set to come into force on August 31.
