The Port of Gdansk gets yet another EU subsidy
- Jan 05, 2018
The Port of Gdansk Authority is one of two Polish companies to receive funds from the Connecting Europe Facility, within the framework of the CEF Blending priority. It has just been announced that the Port of Gdansk has been granted EUR 20 million in the competition.
The "2017 CEF Transport Blending MAP Call" competition, with a pool of EUR 1 billion, has just finished. The total amount of subsidies applied for by companies from across the EU more than twice exceeded the resources allocated. The resources came from the general pool of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), which means that Polish projects were competing against investments submitted from other EU countries. Subsidies were granted to two Polish investments: one, to an amount of EUR 20 million, will go to the Port of Gdansk, and the other - worth EUR 60.55 million - to PKP PLK. As many as 68 projects from the Member States applied for support from the programme, out of which 39 were selected. In terms of the amount of subsidies granted, Poland came 5th among competing countries.
