The Finnish Sustainable Growth Programme for the Transport Sector continues to seek new market opportunities together with Team Finland and ITS Finland. The next opportunity window we will open is the Polish market.
Transport sector is a significant contributor to Polish economy, responsible for approx. 6% of Polish GDP. Large infrastructural investment projects benefit from funding at local, national and EU level. For many years, Poland has been one of the largest beneficiaries of EU funds (e.g. from the Cohesion Policy) supporting investments in the transport sector. Also under the upcoming RRF, Poland is supposed to have over 6 billion EUR at its disposal targeting the area of green, smart mobility.
Poland is a highly urbanized country with 35+ cities having over 100k inhabitants, which opens up a big market for technologies and service providers in the field of sustainable urban mobility. Digitalization, telematics and automation are increasingly visible trends in the Polish mobility market. A number of ongoing and planned investments to be done by public and private sector cover areas such as, among others, EV charging infrastructure, zero-emission city fleet, passenger information systems, road traffic management systems, development of wireless communication in public means of transport. Green and smart mobility developments are also entering new transport segments, such as long-distance transport and heavy-duty transport.
Railway investments are booming. 2,000 km of new railway lines are to be built by the end of 2034 only as a part of the major Polish infrastructure investment – Centralny Port Komunikacyjny (CPK) – which will develop the new central airport with a network of connected railways, as well as the new airport city. Other large investments will take place in the automotive, battery and maritime sectors.
The Polish transport market and existing partnerships create great business opportunities for Finnish companies with high-quality, competitive offering which can be targeted towards both public and private sectors.
The purpose of the webinar is to provide Finnish companies with the introductory market overview and information about relevant business opportunities, as well as recommendation on how to capture the opportunities. Event will host the leading Polish expert organizations in the discussed field. The webinar is targeted at Finnish companies in the smart and sustainable transport sector.
