Ladies and Gentlemen,

Gdańsk is a city whose nature has for centuries been determined by the strategic location on the crossroads of the European trade routes, as well as the open approach to changes and the entrepreneurial spirit of its inhabitants. Emphasising the city’s European roots the city authorities embark on various actions to meet the challenges of the new united Europe. To that aim they pursue broad-scale investments to upgrade the quality of the infrastructure and the quality of life of the local population. They also introduce organisational and legal changes to accelerate investment processes in the city. Whoever chooses to locate his/her business in Gdańsk can be sure to find favourable climate and space for development here. Let me invite you to the city which creates conditions conducive to successful pursuance of any business venture.

Welcome to Gdańsk!
Paweł Adamowicz
Mayor of the City of Gdańsk



Gdańsk is an agglomeration with the population nearing half a million, an important centre of the economic, scientific, and cultural life, and a frequented tourist location. Gdańsk has for years been selected to be the venue of international meetings by politicians, business people, academicians, researchers, and artists. For years too it has initiated many major events of an international format. Lying on the Bay of Gdańsk, on the southern shores of the Baltic Sea, the city goes back a thousand years in history. For centuries it has played the key role in the trade between northern and western Europe on the one hand, and central and eastern European countries on the other hand. Today, Gdańsk is the capital of the Pomeranian voivodship and a major Polish centre of economy and administration. Vital institutions of the central and local governments have their seats in Gdańsk, to name e.g. the Provincial Administration Office, local government of the province, Regional Agency for Consumer and Competition Protection, Court of Appeal, or High Administrative Court.
