A strategic location of Świdnica on the trade route has a direct influence on the dynamic development of the city. Świdnica is located at the intersection of the most important national and regional roads in the region, in close distance to Wrocław, the airport, borders of countries such as the Czech Republic and Germany.
The Świdnica’s Subzone of the Wałbrzych Special Economic Zone is located in the city, with the area of 167,74 ha, of which 147,74 is located in the Commune of Świdnica and 20 ha in the area of the Rural Commune of Świdnica.

Świdnica is historically based on the electromechanical and automotive industry. However, the economic crisis of the 1990s has made a major drop in industry. This has affected many cooperatives, such as those that employed hundreds of people. As a result, many people were left without work. In 2002, more than 6 000 people didn’t have a job. Nowadays due to the dynamic economic development only 2 300 of 60 000 residents are unemployed.
Providing new places to work is a priority for the current city authorities. In 2004 the Subzone of the Wałbrzych Special Economic Zone “Invest-Park” was created, which made Świdnica an object of interest for many new entrepreneurs. The current area of Świdnica’s Subzone is about 162,6 ha.

The second edition of the program has been launched in September 2017. Highly involved students take part in educational and motivational activities. Workshops on career counseling are the most popular among a wide range of program activities. The students had a chance to gain knowledge about strengths of their character, useful for designing their own educational and professional future.
During the meetings with economic education run by the Fundacja Banku Zachodni WBK, students learn how important is the ability to manage money, discover the secrets of the functioning of the market economy. An economic game with attractive prizes will be the summary of knowledge from the classes.
Thanks to the involvement of local entrepreneurs, the program includes also visiting companies located in Świdnica. So far students visited DOLMEB, PROMET, Wagony Świdnickie, KB Invest Kaczmarczyk, Bosch and Cloos.
Moreover, in order to support the development of vocational education, cooperation between entrepreneurs and secondary schools was established. It has resulted in the creation of patronage classes. Students take apprenticeships, trainings, schools are provided with equipment or learning stands.
Another branch of the program involves the project called „League of Unusual Minds” (Liga Niezwykłych Umysłów). Project participants learn programming and coding languages through great fun and modern tools.
In addition to educational activities, young people have the opportunity to participate in motivational meetings. At the end of November there was a meeting with Mariusz Kędzierski - an artist from Świdnica, who fights for his dreams despite of his disabilities.
Civic Education is another element of the activities. The President of Świdnica, Beata Moskal-Słaniewska, conducts regural meetings with students of the seventh grade primary schools, aimed at showing the competence of local governments, their tasks and responsibilities.
