Kędzierzyn-Koźle has  just under 59 thousand residents. It is an important administrative, industrial and cultural centre of the region and, since January 1st, 1999, it has been the seat of the local government authorities of the District Kędzierzyn-Koźle. The city is located in the valley of the Oder and Kłodnica Rivers. The area of the city is 123.4 km2.

Thanks to its favourable location, Kędzierzyn-Koźle is an important hub for water, road and railway transport. Freight transport can be carried out in four main directions: Katowice, Wroclaw, Walbrzych, or Raciborz, and Kędzierzyn-Koźle itself is a very important railway junction for the coal-trunk line connecting the Upper Silesia with the Baltic ports. Also road transport is gaining ever greater importance. Near the city, apart from national and provincial roads, the A4 motorway runs. The water junction consists of the OderOder River, the Gliwice Canal and the Kędzierzyn Canal. Two river ports operate in this water junction. Cargo transport by water can be made to Upper Silesia (Gliwice port), to Lower Silesia, to the ports of Szczecin and Swinoujście, and to the European System of Water Routes Oder – Spree - Havela to the countries of Western Europe.

The well-developed chemical industry is characteristic for Kędzierzyn-Koźle, which has its own scientific and technical facilities. The transformation of the two biggest industrial works, namelyHolding Blachownia S.A. and Zakłady Azotowe S.A., has led to a rationalization of the local labour market and also to the creation of a market niche filled by our own local as well as external private investors.
