Promoter – Financial Intermediary
The operation, structured as a framework loan, will support priority schemes in sustainable mobility, culture and tourism, health and public buildings, included in the current investment programme of the Zachodniopomorskie region in Poland.
The project will improve the attractiveness of the West Pomeranian Region (Wojewodztwo Zachodniopomorskie) and will strengthen the social and economic potential as set down in its Regional Development Strategy 2030 (RDS 2030). The project is in line with the priorities of the Territorial Agenda 2030. Investments under the RDS 2030 will contribute to better-balanced territorial development, reducing inequalities between people and between places within the region. It will therefore improve living conditions in the region as well as strengthen socio-economic prosperity.
