The Pomeranian Voivodeship is one of the most attractive and best developing regions in the country with numerous investment assets. Situated at the crossroads of international transport routes, it is an important place on the map of maritime transport in this part of Europe. The Port of Gdansk is home to the Baltic Hub Terminal, which is the destination for the largest ships in the world, sailing from China, Korea and other Asian countries. The region is also crossed by key pan-European transport routes for transit traffic. Pomerania is the fastest growing region in Poland in terms of GDP growth. The main industries in the Pomeranian Voivodeship are shipbuilding, wood and paper, petrochemical and electrical machinery industries. Industries with the greatest potential for development include ICT, BSS, logistics, biotechnology, electronics and automotive. The concentration of skilled human resources gives investors free access to both highly educated graduates and specialised, experienced staff. The Pomeranian Special Economic Zone is part of the Polish Investment Zone, one of 14 regional entities responsible for providing comprehensive services to investors.
The Polish economy is one of the most sustainable in the EU, with positive medium-term prospects. Poland was the only country in the EU to avoid recession between 2008 and 2010 and has been outperforming average GDP growth in the EU for many years. Nevertheless, the global SARS-CoV-2 pandemic did not escape Poland. In 2020, GDP fell by around 2.5 per cent compared to 2019. However, already in 2021, according to the CSO’s final estimate, it grew by 6.9% compared to 2020. In 2022. GDP grew by 5.1%. The International Monetary Fund forecasts that Poland’s GDP growth will be 1.2% in 2023. In contrast, Poland’s cumulative GDP growth in 2021-2024 is expected to be 16.2%, according to the IMF. The war in Ukraine has had a major impact on the dynamics of domestic processes. Transport routes in Poland and Europe have completely changed. It is estimated that Polish seaports have received more than 4 million tones of Ukrainian cargo since the beginning of the armed invasion. There are plans to create a new base corridor through the country (including a point at the Port of Gdansk) and to increase storage capacity. The country is becoming one of the most important locations for nearshoring.
CTPark Gdańsk Port, located on a plot of land between the Baltic Hub terminal and the A1 motorway, is the developer’s first investment in northern Poland. As part of the complex, CTP is developing two buildings with a total area of 117,000 sqm that meet the requirements of sustainable construction. The roofs of both buildings will be adapted for an 11.6 MWp photovoltaic installation, which is equivalent to the energy needs of 2,000 residential homes. The facility will also be ready to connect modern automation for internal and external systems. CTP has full responsibility for the project – it is not only the investor, but also the general contractor for the complex.
