Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki: Our actions bring benefits to the economy, the budget and Polish entrepreneurs

Last week the Consortium of the Polish Development Fund signed a contract to buy the largest container terminal in Poland, namely DCT Gdańsk. The value of this transaction amounts to over PLN 5 billion. The Prime Minister emphasised that this investment proves our capability of organising such large and complex economic undertakings.

During his visit to the DCT Gdańsk container terminal, the Prime Minister noted that Poland is in the process of taking over the maritime transport, which until recently was directed to Hamburg or Rotterdam. He added that such investments contribute to creating new jobs in our country for top-tier specialists in logistics, transport and the port industry who don’t have to go to Spain, France, Germany or the Netherlands.

We have huge development investments ahead of us. Around EUR 3 billion, which is more than twelve billion PLN, over the next 8–9 years. Already in the next 5–6 years we will be able to develop the transhipment capacity of this port to be more or less on par with Hamburg said the Prime Minister. He added that so far we could only dream of operations and investments of this magnitude and now we are capable of tapping into the potential of the Polish sea and this economic potential is increasingly more beneficial for Poland.

We are ever more effective. Our economic operations bring benefits to the Polish workers, Polish entrepreneurs, the Polish Foundation of Development and, most importantly, also to the State Treasury, to the Polish budget. Today, Gdańsk and the Tri-City, but also Szczecin, are our windows to the world said the Prime Minister.

DCT Gdańsk is Europe’s fastest growing container port. It is among the 15 largest European ports of this type. It is the largest container terminal in Poland and on the Baltic Sea. DCT Gdańsk annually services about 460 ships (including the world’s 100 largest container vessels). The Polish Development Group’s investment in DTC Gdańsk will strengthen Poland’s position in the global trade.
