Another conference of the cycle „Poland – India. Prospects for Economic Co-operation. Expectations, opportunities, challenges for the development of economic relations.” took place on 15 April 2014 in Gdańsk International Fair Amber Expo. The meeting was organized by the Polish – Indian Chamber of Commerce, Gdansk Regional Development Agency and the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development. Deputy Minister of Economy Janusz Piechociński took the Honorary Patronage over the conference. The sponsors of the event were: Von Zanthier & Schulz and Berlitz. Partners of the event were: The National Chamber of Commerce, the Gdynia Cotton Association, the Polish International Freight Forwarders Association, the Employers of Pomerania, the Pomeranian Regional Chamber of Commerce, the National Chamber of Maritime Commerce and the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone.

The purpose of each meeting which is held under the name „Poland – India. Prospects for Economic Cooperation” is to familiarize entrepreneurs representing various branches with the possibilities of cooperation with dynamically developing and promising market of India. That is why the conference program is prepared to convey as much relevant information as possible.

In the first part of the conference the representative of the Ministry of Economy – Lucyna Jaremczuk – Chief Specialist of the Department of Promotion and Bilateral Cooperation of the Ministry of Economy and. Małgorzata Wejsis – Gołębiak – I counsel in the Asia and Pacific Department of the MFA, conducted their speeches. Then the recommended areas of cooperation as well as the state of trade between Poland and India were discussed by Michał Byczkowski

A few words about the culture, history and politics of India were given by Jahangir Mangalia. This speech was than expanded on by Bartosz Jurkiewicz – Director of Berlitz in Gdansk, who explained the impact of cultural differences on business relationships.

An extremely important element to be taken into account when establishing cooperation with Indian partners are legal and tax aspects of trade exchange. This was the topic of the speech given by Joanna Witkiewicz – legal adviser in Von Zanthier & Schulz. Jaroslaw Nawrocki – legal adviser in Geophysics Toruń, provided supplementing examples from his own experience in the Polish economic cooperation with India. The speech by Mr. Nawrocki was a part of the case study panel. During this panel Mr. Stanisław Wszelaki, Member of the Board of Flex Films Europa (the largest Indian investment in Poland), discussed the effects of establishing such relationships.

Conferences „Poland – India. Prospects for Economic Co-operation” are an excellent opportunity to become familiar with the characteristics of the Indian market. The intention of the Chamber is to make them the first step in establishing economic cooperation with entrepreneurs from India. This conferences should also reduce the level of uncertainty resulting from the differences between the markets. We are confident that mutual understanding of the markets of both partners, as well as an explanation of cultural differences (which in this case play an extremely important role) are very important in creating correct and measurable effects. We would like to wish you success in cooperation with business partners in India. We would also like to invite you to cooperate with Polish – Indian Chamber of Commerce.
