Our strategy is based on attracting new investors as well as comprehensive support for investors who have already invested in our city. For this purpose, it was created a dedicated structure within Katowice City Hall providing one-stop shop assistance based upon each specific investor’s expectations and requirements – Investors Assistance Department (IAD).
For the investors who will create new jobs places, the costs of employing and training the newly employed will be refunded by the Poviat (Local) Labour Office.
The Katowice Special Economic Zone took 3rd place among the best economic zones in the world in 2022 in the FDI Business Financial Times ranking.
