Services, industry and construction are the driving forces of the Pomeranian economy, and the two dynamically developing ports of Gdynia and Gdańsk support the development of trade. The Tri-City boasts the highest concentration of economic activity. Gdańsk alone is home to 486,345 people.
The Tri-City is one of the five most attractive areas for foreign investors in Poland. By the end of 2022, the number of economic operators have reached 91,445 thousand . For years, the potential of the Tricity has been based on its strategic coastal location at the crossroads of two trans-European transport corridors and its access to a large and diverse talent pool. The location has shaped the city's economic identity - the extensive maritime sector, along the ports, has been an integral part of Pomerania's economic development for years.
The metropolis has been ranked high in ratings for years - in 2022, Tri-City took 1st place as the most dynamically developing city in Poland (CEE Shared Services and Outsourcing Awards), it was also the star of Outsourcing Stars 2021, 2022 in the City category, i.e. it took 1st place as the fastest growing city in the BSS sector in Poland, and in 2020 and 2022 it was ranked as the best place to do business in Poland in the ABSL ranking.

Throughout 2022, IT companies accounted for the lion's share of BSS investors emerging or reinvesting in the Tricity, while since the autumn they have been joined by advanced shared service centres and financial and customer experience service providers. Employers in the sector are now putting a lot of effort into getting the balance right in hybrid working models, which has a direct impact on the efficiency of teams and their stability, i.e. calming turnover.
The biggest change in the spectrum of investment projects so far is the emergence of a large group of engineering projects at the intersection of high manufacturing and IT, such as Siemiens Gamesa, ThyssenKrupp or Archer, most of which have decided to set up teams in the Tri-City to increase their creative and innovative potential.
Another major factor of change is that much of Poland's energy production and supply is beginning to shift from the south to the coast, with the construction of a new floating jetty, transmission line and LNG storage facilities, as well as the planned construction of a nuclear power plant and a number of offshore wind farms. The whole premise will require a dynamic expansion of the technological infrastructure and will certainly entail the creation/expansion of many teams and companies in the short and long term.
