ABOUT THE FORUM

The PAIH Business Forum 2019 is a unique opportunity to meet fellow businesspeople and many business support institutions.

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) continuously have to tackle import and export challenges on both foreign and domestic markets. These often complex challenges, require the support of stable and trusted partners, such as the Polish Investment and Trade Agency – PAIH, the Polish Development Fund, Special Economic Zones, and the Voivodeships Marshal’s Offices and many others. The PAIH Business Forum is the best opportunity to meet representatives of all these institutions in order to establish contacts for future cooperation.

Currently less than 20% of Polish companies operate on a European scale, and less than 14% - on a global one. In turn, as many as half of those who do business on the Old Continent are thinking about moving on to join the circle of global players. EXPORT AND INVESTMENT abroad – that is a real challenge especially for micro-, small and medium-sized companies. The PAIH Business Forum 2019 on the 9th October is an opportunity to establish contacts for future cooperation with reliable and trusted PARTNERS who will make it easier to take on such a challenge.

PAIH would like to invite entrepreneurs to Warsaw so that we can learn about your needs in order to ensure you of our comprehensive support.

During the PAIH Business Forum 2019:

  • there will be an opportunity to learn what PAIH and the other Forum partners have to offer,
  • PAIH experts and PAIH Foreign Trade Office representatives will be available for individual meetings,
  • there will be a chance for you to participate in regional and trade workshops,
  • you will learn about the possibilities for expansion to countries who are members of the World Association of Investment Promotion Agencies (WAIPA),
  • in the evening there will be an informal networking session.
