9.1 percent was the unemployment rate in Poland in September, 1.8 percentage points lower than in August.

For many ports, port authorities, cities and municipalities, autumn is a time of intense activity due to the start of works financed by European Union funds. During the summer, the European Center for Transport Projects made substantial progress in the auditing of projects planned under the Infrastructure and Environment Operational Program 2007-2013. Several dozen so-called pre-agreement contracts were drawn up to carry out planned projects. Among the main beneficiaries will be larger and smaller Polish ports and coastal cities.

Szczecin will be entitled to more than zl.79 million to modernize port access roads under the Infrastructure and Environment Operational Program. Additionally, it will receive zl.33.4 million for a zl.63.4-million project related to hydrotechnical infrastructure.

Świnoujście will benefit at the same time from a zl.50-million subsidy for the reconstruction of the port's seawall in a zl.78-million project.

Gdynia plans to create port infrastructure to serve sea ferries, including road and rail access, in a total investment worth zl.490 million, of which zl.230 million will come from subsidies. Additionally, a zl.60-million subsidy will help rebuild the port's canal at a total cost of zl.94 million.

Elbląg will receive zl.16.2 million in subsidies for the modernization and rebuilding of the port's seafront at a cost of zl.33.8 million.

Kołobrzeg in turn will benefit from European Union funds for road and rail works improving port access to the amount of zl.104 million, in a project worth zl.170 million in total. Finally, Gdańsk's port will receive a zl.84-million subsidy for a new road and rail infrastructure worth zl.127 million.
