Who was responsible for bringing the Intel investment to Poland?
The Industrial Development Agency and The Polish Investment and Trade Agency were responsible for the preparation of the largest foreign direct investment in the history of Poland
On June 16th, 2023 Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and Intel Corporation CEO Pat Gelsinger initiated the largest foreign direct investment in the history of Poland. The technology giant from Silicon Valley will invest nearly PLN 20 billion in the Semiconductor Integration and Testing Plant in Miękinia. The Polish Investment and Trade Agency and the Industrial Development Agency, in cooperation with the Ministry of Digital Affairs and the Legnica Special Economic Zone, were responsible for substantive support for the investment, which opens a new chapter in the history of Polish industry.
Intel’s Semiconductor Integration and Testing Facility is the largest high-tech investment in this region of Europe. The choice of American investors fell on Miękinia near Wrocław. Decisive factors were the infrastructural facilities and the proximity of the academic center with a strong technical University. Only in the production area alone, the plant will employ over 2,000 employees, mainly highly qualified specialists and engineers.
