The city of Gdynia in northern Poland has once again topped the Forbes magazine's league table of Poland's most business-friendly cities with a population of 150,000 to 300,000.

Statistically, there was one newly established company per every 800 residents in Gdynia last year, according to the Polish edition of Forbes monthly. In total, Gdynia, with a population of 250,000, is home to 42,000 businesses whose 2007 revenue exceeded zl.16 billion.

Gdynia has 109 bank branches, including the Polish headquarters of the Nordea bank. Gdynia is one of a few seaports to have two container terminals managed by leading operators.

Gdynia is where leading Polish IT company Prokom is based. New technologies and young entrepreneurs are promoted in an annual competition called Gdyński Biznesplan (Business Plan for Gdynia); contestants receive support in the form of know-how and help in running their businesses. A number of dynamic enterprises operate in the Pomerania Science and Technology Park.

Gdynia is home to 41 companies with foreign capital. One of them is Thomson Reuters, whose office in the city employs 400 analysts. When Reuters came to Gdynia in 2006, it only had 20 analysts.
