KATOWICE IN GOOD SHAPE DURING THE PANEDMIA

The latest report created by a team of experts from the University of Economics in Katowice shows, that there have been no major company shutdowns in Silesia Region, and the unemployment rate was lower than the national level.

According to the report, at the end of 2020, Katowice could boast with the lowest unemployment rate at the level of 1.7%. Despite the economic constraints, average salaries have increased, but this growth has not been clearly felt due to the inflation increase. The pandemic has not stopped investment processes of residential construction, measured by the number of completed dwellings. Through to the very high activity of construction companies, Katowice maintains the best housing condition compared to other Silesian cities.

However, 2021 may be the year, in which some economic sectors will face the effects of the pandemic more than in the year 2020. It’s not clear how much the statistical data reflect the actual financial condition of enterprises, and how much it’s the effect of financial support from national budget.
