Three voivodships top investment attractiveness ranking


The voivodships of Mazowieckie, Slaskie and Dolnoslaskie are the most attractive destinations for investment in Poland, according to Investment Attractiveness of Regions 2011, a report by the Enterprise Institute of the Warsaw School of Economics (IP SGH). The study confirms a correlation between a region’s GDP and its potential and actual investment attractiveness, and the role of big cities as growth engines. Hence the relatively weakest appeal of eastern Poland, though its authors believe this might change thanks to investments in road infrastructure and selective specialisation e.g. in dairy products.

The report ranks the Poland’s 16 voivodships into six classes of investment attractiveness (A-F), depending on their score on a number parameters illustrating both their potential (human capital, technical and social infrastructure, market size, public sector, innovation) and actual performance and investment activity (labour productivity, business profitability, investment outlays). Mazowieckie, Slaskie and Dolnoslaskie together make up Class A in terms of potential attractiveness; Class B comprises Malopolskie, Pomorskie and Wielkopolskie; no province was assigned to Class C; Class D includes Lodzkie, Opolskie and Zachodniopomorskie; Class E Kujawsko-Pomorskie, Lubuskie, Podkarpackie, Podlaskie, and Warminsko-Mazurskie; and Class F Lubelskie and Swietokrzyskie.
