The Polish real estate market is of growing interest to South Korean investors and investment funds, Arkadiusz Tarnowski from the Polish Investment and Trade Agency (PAIH) in Seoul told PAP on Thursday.

"Poland has moved up to the five most important European countries for Korean investment funds," Tarnowski said when referring to the Poland-Korea business forum, organised on Thursday in Seoul by the PAIH office.

Tarnowski added that four out of five logistics centres of Amazon in Poland belong to Korean funds. In his view, the funds are highly interested in the office and warehousing markets.

He underscored that the Korean funds do not invest in projects carried out in politically unstable countries or in projects of very high political risks. In his opinion, this is a "prestige" for Poland as a safe country for Korean investments.

The Poland-Korea business forum, organised on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the two countries establishing bilateral relations, was attended by around 130 people. Among the guests were representatives of Korean companies, a delegation of firms and institutions from Poland as well as Deputy Minister of Entrepreneurship and Technology Tadeusz Kościński.
