Janusz Piechocinski, Deputy Prime Minister of Poland, has officially inaugurated the construction of the second deep-water berth in DCT Gdansk (T2).
The T2 groundbreaking ceremony took place on Friday, 15th of May, 2015. The inauguration of the construction works was preceded by the round table discussion, which was a good opportunity to raise awareness of Australia’s contribution to Poland’s and the broader region’s growth.
The main theme was innovation as the key to accelerating economic growth in Poland. Discussion participants tried to answer the question if Australian investments in logistics and energy can assist in transformation of Poland and Central Eastern Europe. The round table discussion was organized together with Embassy of the Commonwealth of Australia and Austrade – Australian Trade Commission.
During the inauguration a time capsule containing message regarding the meaning of DCT’s investment and its current influence on region’s economy, was placed at T2 construction site. Its exact location will be marked with a special memorial plaque.
Completion of this project with an investment amounting to EUR 200 million, which is financed by the consortium of 7 banks, is scheduled for the third quarter of 2016.
