The first Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in Poland
was set up in the city of Mielec
in 1995. Since then the country has opened 13 more such dedicated investment areas. The EURO-PARK MIELEC
was created on a large area and spreads over several locations.
The city of Mielec is located in southeast Poland and it is the capital of Mielec County. The area bases its economy on the homonymous aviation factory. The existence of the SEZ has had a very positive impact on the local economy.
