The Ostrava-Mošnov Strategic Industrial Zone is ready for further expansion4. 9. 2020
During its council meeting, the Moravian-Silesian Region has approved plans for further development of the strategic industrial zone in Ostrava-Mošnov. The region’s representatives agreed on mutual cooperation with the statutory city of Ostrava in the preparation and implementation of projects in Mošnov’s extended area of interest.
"Our region has been going through a very important transformation. We need to attract more new investors who will help us not only strengthen the local economy and change the image of the region, but also create new attractive jobs. That is why I am glad that, together with the representatives of the region, we agreed that the industrial and logistics zone needs to be expanded. Our activities will continue in cooperation with the city of Ostrava as well as in accordance with the Development Study of the Extended Area of Interest, which was prepared by the Moravian-Silesian Region," said Ivo Vondrák, the Governor of the Moravian-Silesian Region.
The study of development of the extended area of interest in Mošnov serves as a background material for the Moravian-Silesian Region and the City of Ostrava, which are or will be the owners of development real estate in this area. The study conceptually identifies the possibilities of using the area and also addresses the technical infrastructure as well as connection of the area to the superior road and rail network. It also provides walking, cycling and public transport.
"Thanks to the study, we have an overview of areas suitable for the construction of logistics, production or research facilities. We also have estimates of the investments needed to build the necessary infrastructure. The new part of the industrial zone will be connected to Leoš Janáček Airport Ostrava and the Mošnov Combined Transport Terminal, which may create an exceptional complex offering comprehensive services such as the Mošnov International Logistics Center," said Jaroslav Kania, Deputy Governor of the Moravian-Silesian Region.
