For over 30 years, Poland has been building a democratic, free-market economic haven for ambitious and enterprising people. As the sixth largest economy in the European Union and a country that has recorded almost a nine fold economic growth since 1990, we know how to develop entrepreneurship and fuel the economy with a diversity of talents. Today, as a safe, business haven, Poland wants to share its success with Belarusians by inaugurating the program- Poland. A Business Harbor. Under this name there is a complementary set of services, which are based on knowledge, experience , modern standards and our close trade relations with neighbors and the world, all for the building of Belarusian’s success on the territory of the Republic of Poland.

It is important to help those who want to develop, this includes young Belarusian entrepreneurs. Reaching out to Belarusians is also our moral duty, especially At this moment in time, reaching out to Belarusians is our moral duty, says Deputy Prime Minister Jadwiga Emilewicz.

The program- Poland. A Business Harbor, is a package that consists of four-element that will make it easier for freelancers, start-ups, SMEs and large companies to relocate to the territory of the Republic of Poland without any problems. The program is being coordinated by the Ministry of Development and the Polish Investment and Trade Agency, in cooperation with GovTech Polska in the Chancellery of the Prime Minister, the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development (PARP) and Startup Hub Poland.

In addition, individuals and companies from Belarus can count on having easy contact, with local governments or Special Economic Zones, which have actively participated in the preparation of an offer for relocated employees and their families, by creating temporary office and residential space. Another of the elements of the package, is support in the form of matching entrepreneurs with investors and grants for R&D activity.
