Wrocław is a leading economic, technological and cultural centre and one of the country's most dynamically developing metropolises. The city is known for its business-friendly approach: many renowned Polish companies have been established here, and foreign investors have recognised Wrocław as one of the best locations in Europe.
Wrocław has enormous potential, both in terms of the knowledge and experience of the professionals working here, and in terms of the infrastructure and support provided by the local authorities. In recent years, Wrocław has undergone major infrastructure investments that have significantly improved the quality of life for its residents and enabled businesses to operate efficiently. This is particularly important in the case of investments related to manufacturing and transport. The area is attractive to top players in various industries (IT, Finance, Automotive, Appliance, SSC) because they can choose from competent professionals and count on a solid academic background.

Despite the outbreak of war in Ukraine and the negative impact of a pandemic, Wrocław has proven to be a resilient city thanks to long-term strategic measures. Both the start-up ecosystem and investors developing their businesses in and around the Lower Silesian capital have taken advantage of opportunities that have favoured their development.
One of the most important events this year was certainly the announcement of the largest and most expensive investment in Poland. The US company Intel is going to build a semiconductor integration and testing plant in the Wrocław conurbation of Miękinia. However, Intel is not the only major company that has decided to invest in our region. In May, an official ceremony was held to mark the opening of PepsiCo's factory, while BNY Mellon and BASF, among others, have announced further expansions in Wrocław.
Of particular note are the results of the latest global ranking of the best cities for foreign direct investment (FDI), compiled by the Financial Times' monthly "fDi Intelligence". Once again, Wrocław took first place in the category of small and medium-sized cities - these results clearly show that Wrocław and, of course, its surroundings are attractive destinations for foreign direct investment and popular with entrepreneurs.
