Smart Green Development in Poland
DI invites member companies to meet the Polish delegation from West Pomerania on 7 May 2019 at the House of Industry, Copenhagen. This is your chance to engage further in the opportunities in the green energy transition in Poland with a special focus on West Pomerania.
Poland is Denmark’s close and large neighbour and most important market in Central and Eastern Europe. Western Pomerania is an attractive region to do business. Due to the proximity to the Baltic Sea it an important gateway between Denmark and Poland. Many Danish companies are investing heavily in the region.
As of April, it will be even easier to access the market as a direct SAS flight connection Copenhagen – Szczecin is opening with a flight time of just 30 minutes.
The green transition is gaining momentum, and recent developments pave the way for more renewable energy, improved energy efficiency and smart city solutions with Western Pomerania as a front-runner in wind energy and other green solutions.
ICT is a fast-growing industry in West Pomerania, with the growth of Szczecin as a competent and vibrant ICT hub, making it a great place for locating advanced services and development centres.
