The Central Communication Port will create 95,000 jobs in Poland

 At its peak, the investment program of the Central Communication Port (CPK) will create 95,000 jobs. The gross added value of GDP that this investment will bring to the economy will amount to PLN 126 billion (+/- $32b) - said Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Marcin Horała.

In his opinion, the coronavirus pandemic will have a positive impact on the implementation of the project.

"In the conditions of the economic slowdown (...) investments are much easier - there are lower prices and more willing contractors looking for orders. On the other hand, such public investment is needed to stimulate the economy" - said the minister.

"We plan this investment, so that, in the event that the CPK becomes full, there will be land reserves and easy expansion possibilities up to 100 million passengers, if the need arises in the future." 

The Central Communication Port will consist of both international and national airport terminals, as well as a major railway junction. All of that is designed to create a transfer hub between Warsaw and Łódź, which will integrate air, rail and road transport. The largest Polish cities will be within 2.5 hours of travel from CPK.
