Paweł Kurtasz, Chairman of PAIH’s Management Board during the announcement of the Intel investment near Wrocław
The choice of Poland as a place to invest and at the same time build a key element of the European semiconductor industry is not accidental. It is proof not only of our country’s exceptional attractiveness for investment, its security, but also of a perfectly functioning investor support system.
Grzegorz Oszast, PAIH’s member of the Board during the Poland-Western Balkans business meeting
Despite various global turbulences, first the crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and later Russia's aggression against Ukraine, the Polish economy is stable and constantly developing. This is due to the innovativeness and flexibility of Polish companies, but also to the environment conducive to business and the support provided it.
Paweł Kurtasz, Chairman of PAIH’s Management Board on the opening of PAIH's Polish Trade Offices in the country
We want to achieve two things, increase the recognition of PAIH among entrepreneurs as an institution supporting development on foreign markets and facilitate contact with us. Without internationalization, companies are not able to fully exploit their potential for development. Only entering foreign markets allows Polish business to spread its wings. We want PAIH to be a natural association for every entrepreneur who is thinking about expansion, regardless of the size of the company.
Marcin Fabianowicz, Managing Director of PAIH’s Investment Department on the Intel investment near Wrocław
We are glad that we could contribute to the construction of a new, extremely modern industry in Poland. We hope that this will be the beginning of a real investment boom in Lower Silesia, and that other technology giants will follow in Intel's footsteps and invest even more often in Poland.
We invite you to our monthly dose of macroeconomic analysis prepared on the basis of data from the Polish Central Statistical Office. More »
