Doing Business In Poland

30 June | 10:00-11:30 | Event in English

The war in Ukraine has now lasted for more than 100 days. After the Russian attack, Ukrainian business had to try to survive as best as they can, and those who managed are now adjusting to the new reality.

Poland has opened its borders not only to Ukrainian citizens in need, but also to Ukrainian businesses, who support their country by maintaining jobs and paying taxes. It is important for business to continue developing and Poland can offer assistance and many new opportunities in this area.

During our event we will discuss how Ukrainian business can enter the Polish market, and make the most of the welcoming business environment and diversify into new markets. There are plenty of options in Poland, which are readily suited to Ukrainian businesses.

We look forward to establishing bridges of cooperation between our countries and to helping Ukrainian business readjust despite the conflict in their home country.
