PSEZ awarded in the Global Free Zones of the Year

The wide range of activities of the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone has been acknowledged in the international arena. In this year’s prestigious FDI Intelligence ranking – the Global Free Zones of The Year 2017, the PSEZ won 7 awards.
The Zone was awarded the Highly Commended status in the Regional Winners category, and the Specialism Award for supporting the shipbuilding industry. In addition, the PSEZ was rewarded for Expansions, Aftercare Services, China Strategy, Crossborder Collaboration and Access to Finance.
FDI Intelligence is a part of the British opinion-shaping daily paper, the Financial Times, and the largest training centre for foreign direct investments (FDI) in the world. It specialises in the development of foreign economic relations.

Nearly 120 companies operate out of Pomeranian SEZ on northern Poland’s coast between Gdynia and Gdańsk, including Japan-based Bridgestone, Singapore-based Flextronics and France-based Lafarge Cement. Areas within the zone are located on the New Silk Road, a Chinese initiative designed to promote trade between China and Europe. Officials in the zone created an international economic relations department, tasked with organising economic missions to support the import and export of Polish goods. Besides investment areas, the zone offers office space and laboratories, and provides services to support the development of modern technologies. In 2016, Pomeranian SEZ collaborated with Free Economic Zone Brest in Belarus to attract companies in hi-tech sectors. Together, the zones worked on improving the transfer of knowledge between universities and businesses.
