The British government has offered Poland a 100-million-pound export loan to co-finance the construction of a planned Central Transportation Port, Poland's Deputy Infrastructure Minister Mikolaj Wild announced on Wednesday.

Wild, who is the Polish government's commissioner for the project, said at the Impact mobility rEVolution'19 event in Katowice, southern Poland, that he was informed about the loan proposal in a letter from the British government.

he explained that export loans are granted at a lower interest rate than any other form of credit, but only on condition that the loan-taker uses services provided by the loaning country.

Wild said that Britain's proposal showed that the Central Transportation Port undertaking was attractive for foreign investors and that Poland stood at a point where "money is seeking interesting projects, and not interesting projects money."
