Podlaskie Region

The Natural place to do business

Invest in the centre of Europe

Many of Podlaskie’s qualities are absolutely unique: its strategic geographical location at the crossroads of European and Asian trading routes, the highest level of security in Poland, great conditions for talent development, an impressive number of deep-tech start-ups, and the cleanest air in the country.

Podlaskie is a place where the world of nature and the world of business meet in perfect harmony. It is a home of ambitious people, whose ideas conquer international markets. In Podlaskie entrepreneurs can run their global businesses whilst enjoying the peace of mind and inspiration that flows straight from the heart of primaeval nature. All of this takes place in a unique atmosphere of kindness and hospitality that the inhabitants of the region have been associated with for centuries.

Podlaskie is the natural place to do business.

Strategic location

Podlaskie Voivodeship is crossed by important road routes: the Via Baltica, that links the Baltic States to the trans-European transport network, and the Via Carpatia, which links Gdańsk and Klaipeda with South-Eastern Europe. In addition to this road infrastructure, the Rail Baltica – a fast railway line from Berlin to Helsinki is being developed. Thanks to its strategic location, Podlaskie is also an important point on the New Silk Road, as it is here that rail shipments cross the border of the European Union.

The economy of the future

The Podlaskie Economic Forum is an international conference on the economic development of Eastern Poland and changes taking place in the global economy. The forum is a place to exchange the views of entrepreneurs, politicians, diplomats, scientists and all those who are interested in the contemporary economy.

Investments in innovations

Podlaskie Region is increasingly important as far as Polish start-ups are concerned. Devices to make everyday life easier for the disabled, robots that teach logical thinking, space technologies, unique bicycles… The young people of Podlaskie will surprise you with their creativity as they conquer demanding markets and compete against the best rivals in the world.
