The First Polish Economic Forum will begin on Monday in Bern, the capital of Switzerland. It is a two-day series of debates, meetings and fairs under the slogan “Polish entrepreneurs in Switzerland - a recipe for success.”
The forum will be attended by representatives of the world of business, tourism, science, research centers and local government officials. Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki will participate remotely and give the opening speech.
The organiser of the project is the Polish Embassy in Switzerland. Ambassador Iwona Kozłowska said that the aim of the forum is to revive the economic potential in bilateral relations and to support Polish entrepreneurship.
“As part of the forum, we primarily want to show the Polish potential that Polish entrepreneurs could present on the Swiss market. We also aim to stimulate further development of economic cooperation between our countries, not only economical development, but also scientific and research. As we all know, Switzerland is a world leader in innovation,” she said.
The ambassador emphasised that Poland is a country with huge ambitions and potential. “We can afford to be a development partner for Switzerland,” Ms Kozłowska said. She informed that the potential of the Polish tourist offer will also be discussed during the forum. The conference will be attended by representatives of Polish craft unions and local government officials.
The forum will last two days. Discussions were planned, among others, on Polish exports to Switzerland, direct investments in Switzerland, opportunities for cooperation between Polish entrepreneurs and research centers with Swiss partners in the field of new technologies and the prospects for the development of cooperation in the field of crafts.
