"The medal winning land 2016"
The “Medal winning land” is a nationwide contest that aims at selecting the best land for industrial projects in each province. It consists of several stages. Bobolice was one of the towns that applied for the title of best investment area in 2016. On 30 August in Bobolice in an unusual place i.e. the Economic Activity Zone in Bobolice (SAG), a visit of the committee concerned with the second stage of the competition “The medal winning land in 2016” took place.
The Commission was represented by: Mr. Miroslaw Odziemczyk - Representative of the Polish Agency for Information and Foreign Investment, based in Warsaw, Mrs Monika Narewicz and Mr Szymon Pałac, both representing the Centre Investors at UMWZ(Governor’s Office of Zachodniopomorskie Province) in Szczecin.
At the invitation of the Mayor the conference was also attended by local entrepreneurs, Councilors of the County Council of Koszalin and the Town Council in Bobolice, representatives of vocational education from the region: Mr. Zygfryd Walczak - Chancellor of the Koszalin High School of Arts, Mrs Jolanta Kubicka - Director of “Nauta” Vocational School in Bobolice and Leszek Karbowski – Director of ZUKiO in Bobolice.
It is worth noting that only 4 locations passed the first stage in the Zachodniopomorskie Province, including the one in Bobolice. During the second stage Bobolice presented its advantages, incentives for investors and other substantive information useful in assessing the investment offer. The Commission assessed the presentation as A plus.
Mr. Miroslaw Odziemczyk (PAIiIZ) said as a summary, that it is a matter of time for investors to appear in Bobolice – in this charming, friendly place, open to any initiative in the town.
Although Bobolice failed to win the title “The medal winning land”, mainly due to ongoing and not yet completed physical preparation of the zone, operations and investment incentives were very highly rated.
