The 1st Polish Economic Forum to be held in Bern, Switzerland, will gather a wide spectrum of representatives of business and institutional stakeholders from Poland and Switzerland. The two day event will be full of inspiring panel discussions and networking opportunities. Key topics to be discussed during the Forum will include: the strengthening of investment and export ties between both countries, Poland’s potential in new technologies, tourism opportunities in Poland and cooperation between craftsmen. Although COVID-19 has had and will have an impact on business and everyday life, the panel discussions will direct participants’ attention to post-pandemic opportunities. These can already be observed in technology, and for that reason one of the panels will be dedicated to such opportunities.
A separate area will be provided for business networking.
The panellists will represent leading Polish and Swiss companies across various industry sectors and services, as well as business-facilitating public institutions. Also, prominent policy makers from both countries will be present.
The conference languages will be Polish and German. Simultaneous translation will be provided.
Participation in the event is free of charge, registration to the event can be done using an electronic form from August 26, 2021.
