Polish Cities proved their attractiveness for direct foreign investments and they are competitive not only on a regional level but also in the global scale. That is why the time has come to compare them with each other and to measure their potential in the dynamically developing Poland.
The cities were evaluated in six categories: economic potential, human resources, infrastructure and communication, friendly surrounding, cost optimization and the strategy of attracting investments.
