Katowice zone forecasts increase in activity in 2012


The Katowice Special Economic Zone (KSSE) expects to finalise at least 20-22 new investment projects in 2012 worth PLN 1-1.2bn (approx. €224-269m) and estimated to bring 1,300 new jobs, the zone said in a statement on 12 January.

If realised, the figures would represent a moderate improvement compared with 2011, when the KSSE closed 20 projects with the combined value of approximately PLN 1.1bn (€246m) and expected to create around new 1,000 jobs. But a more substantial increase in activity is also possible, said CEO Piotr Wojaczek. He revealed that the KSSE was contending for several large-scale investments that could have a major impact on overall figures.

In the first quarter the zone expects to announce at least four and possibly more new investments. Roughly one in two of the upcoming new projects are by automotive firms.
