The American concern Intel wants to build eight chip factories for EUR 80 billion in one of the European Union countries. Poland is one of the potential locations for this gigantic investment, informs Rzeczpospolita.
– We received about 70 location proposals, and three of them are in Poland. Prime Minister Morawiecki was a good seller, convincing me why I should consider Poland, says Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger.
The newspaper reports that the investment was one of the topics of his conversation with Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki on September 8 at the company’s R&D center in Gdańsk. In the location chosen by the concern, eight plants are to be built, which will cost a total of EUR 80 billion.
Work for 10,000 people
“The project is planned for a decade, 10,000 people will find work in it. Each of them will employ five or ten people employed, among others, by suppliers” – the daily reports.
He adds that the Polish authorities do not comment on potential locations. However, according to unofficial information, Lower Silesia and its economic zones have the greatest chances.
“Intel is to make a choice by the end of the year. The company does not hide that apart from the location, which is a sufficiently large and well-developed plot, the incentive program will also be important. It states that currently, when building such factories in Asia, about 25-40 percent of the value is a support program. Locations from such countries as Germany, Italy, France and Ireland are competitive for Poland, “the newspaper enumerates.
