The Council of Ministers decided to extend the Cracow Special Economic Zone. In accordance with the adopted decision, the area of the Zone will be extended by 159 ha, 99.9 ha of which constitute public areas and 59.6 ha of which – private areas, which were covered with the status of the Zone due to realization of new investment projects.
The extension of the Cracow Special Economic Zone is tantamount to creation of new sub-zones in Nowy Targ, Zakliczyn, Jedrzęjów, Klucze and Tuchów. Moreover, new investment projects will be realized within the Zone by such companies as Kolejowe Zakłady Nawierzchniowe "Bieżanów" Sp. z o.o. (Cracow), Velvet Care Sp. z o.o. (Klucze) or Lajkonik Snacks Sp. z o.o. (Skawina). The investments of all companies for which the Zone was extended will amount to minimum 185 million zlotys. Furthermore, 185 new working places will be created, and 1065 will still be maintained.
We have been waiting for this extension for a really long time and now we are convinced that it is worth it. Thanks to the change of the borders of our Zone, the realization of new investments and development of companies which invest in innovations and develop their products will be possible. We thank to managing boards of the companies and local authorities for patience. I am really glad that we managed to enhance the process of changing the borders of the Zone, which will definitely result in new projects in the nearest future. Three regions will gain a new offer for investors and thus we kindly invite to invest in Małopolskie, Świętokrzyskie and Podkarpackie Voivodships – Wojciech Przybylski, Chairman of the Board of the Cracow Technology Park who manages the Cracow Special Economic Zone, says.
After the extension, the Zone will be present in 30 boroughs situated on the area of the Małopolskie, Podkarpackie and Świętokrzyskie Voivodships.
