The Lubuskie Region - the location of the Lubuskie Region, right on the German border, is conducive to foreign investments, mainly from western Europe and the Scandinavian countries. The leading branch of the industrial-processing sector is production for the automotive industry, whereas local traditional sectors engage in wood processing and paper manufacturing. Also active are the sectors specialising in electronics, food, glaziery and construction ceramics, machinery, metal constructions (metal products), biotechnology, and transport and logistics. Zielona Góra, Gorzów Wielkopolski, Sulechów, Żary and Słubice constitute important academic centres with significant scientific achievements.

Investment opportunities

  • Very-well-developed road, rail and waterway networks, with many border crossings (by road, rail and river), facilitating the fast transport of goods;
  • Good conditions for the growth of industry, owing to the presence of universities which offer technical majors. The Region’s main potential for the generation of human capital comes from the six universities, teaching over 13 thousand students. Vocational schools are attended by 19.2% and technical secondary schools by 50.5% of the young people from the Region;
  • The favourable demographic structure of the region - a large proportion of young people;
  • Compared to other EU regions and countries, especially from the west of Europe, labour costs in Lubuskie are still significantly lower;
  • The numerous institutions and service companies actively support business and economic cooperation with the neighbouring countries;
  • The close distance to the large consumer markets of the European Union;
  • The dynamic development of the private sector;
  • The large number of enterprises with foreign capital, as compared to other Regions;
  • Gas supplied from local sources and transit pipelines;
  • Clean environment, beneficial for the development of tourism and agritourism farms;
