The Industrial Park – a complex of separate real estates that at least comprises a real estate on which the technical infrastructure that has remained thereafter a restructured or liquidated enterprise is located, and which has been set up under a civil law agreement in which a local government unit is one of the parties, thus creating a possibility of conducting business operations for entrepreneurs, especially small and medium-sized ones. Legal basis: the Act on Amending the Act on Financial Support for Investments and the Act on the Conditions for Eligibility and Supervision State Aid for Entrepreneurs of 29 August 2003 (Journal of Laws 03159.1537).
