Ukrainian enterprises, as a result of the ongoing war, are looking for a safer place to operate. According to the Polish Economic Institute (PIE), Poland has become a natural relocation destination for many Ukrainian entrepreneurs.
Since late February, Poland has opened its borders not only to Ukrainian citizens in need, but also to Ukrainian businesses, who support their country by maintaining jobs and paying taxes. It is important for business to continue developing and Poland can offer assistance and many new opportunities in this area.
As previously reported by the Polish daily newspaper, Rzeczpospolita, startups from across the eastern border are also drawn to Poland. In the first quarter, as part of the Poland Prize program, which is backed by the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development (PARP), 72 innovative, foreign companies located their operations in Poland. One in three of them came from Ukraine.
Furthermore, the Poland.Business Harbour project has been in effect for Ukraine since July 2021. This is a project which facilitates the relocation of companies and employees from countries across the eastern border, mainly Belarus and Ukraine, to Poland.
However, it is not only IT specialists and programmers who are coming to Poland. Technology companies, promoting innovation, such as those involved in photographing planet Earth from space, are deciding to take this step as well. Additionally, businesses related to the SSC (shared service center) sector, the industrial storage market as well as the construction and food industries.
For its part, PAIH currently supports four Ukrainian companies whose projects are worth €43 million and will create 973 jobs, according to PIE.
