PAIH joins hands with Association of Polish Chambers of Commerce Abroad

Cooperation with chambers of commerce, hence more intensive activities of Foreign Trade Offices have been established throughout a partnership agreement between PAIH and the Association of Polish Chambers of Commerce Abroad. - Our objectives are similar - improvement of national enterprises’ competitiveness and making them stronger abroad. That is why, I am sure that closer relations between us, the PAIH trade offices as well as Polish chambers of commerce all around the world will benefit the Polish business a lot - PAIH vice-president Wojciech Fedko said.

On November 6th PAIH was the host of „Polish business organizations in the world: How to exploit potential of the existing structures for the support of national entrepreneurs in their expansion” conference. During the event representatives of Polish chambers of commerce and business organizations abroad presented a new business project which will help Polish companies to operate on foreign markets.

The newly established organisation is to be a platform of cooperation and exchange of experience, knowledge and contacts for Polish entrepreneurs operating in the whole world, as well as building a positive image of Poland in the international arena. - Our strength is hidden in the synergy of knowledge and unique experience. We will be even more effective together. Moreover, in the framework of the revised economic diplomacy we could be a partner for the Polish government and base our strategy on the Responsible Development Strategy - President of the Association Hanna Stypułkowska-Goutierre argued.

Looking at the British and German chambers of commerce, their effectiveness and the strength in the local markets confirm our belief that this kind of support is needed by the Polish business. The idea of setting up the association had been born from this conclusion - Joanna Schuhholz, Executive Director at the Polish Chamber of Commerce in the Netherlands said. - There is a necessity of cooperation with organisations, that have at their disposal particular knowledge and a local network in the ecosystem of supporting the expansion of Polish companies - W. Fedko added.

There is some 40 Polish business organisations worldwide. They seek to achieve a common goal: supporting Polish companies abroad and promoting economic relations between Poland and the country they operate in. By now, the Polish chambers of commerce located abroad have not been in touch actually. Establishing the Association is to be the first step towards closer cooperation.

The conference was attended by representatives of 18 chambers of commerce from Norway, Sweden, Austria, the US (New York, Florida and California), Israel, France, Brazil, Spain, the Netherlands, Argentina, Serbia, among others. All of them support starting of the Association.
