MFA launches portal promoting Polish entrepreneurs on foreign markets
To support Polish companies in searching for new outlets in the turbulent times of the epidemic, the Foreign Ministry has launched a website promoting their offer on international markets, deputy Foreign Minister Paweł Jabłoński has told PAP.
"Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many supply chains were broken, while new demand developed in many places where there was no such demand before. This is an economic opportunity for our companies, hence the idea," Jabłoński said.
The platform is designed mainly for producers of food, medical equipment, pharmaceuticals, personal protection and hygiene products as well as technology companies but other industries are also welcome to join by sending their business offer to the ministry, he added.
Polish embassies and foreign offices of the Polish Investment and Trade Agency (PAIH) will help Polish entrepreneurs to establish contacts with representatives of local business and local authorities, especially ministries responsible for the economy, agriculture and health as well as offer their support in procedural matters, Jabłoński said.
"At the moment, we are focusing on Asian markets but we also expect significant interest from Africa, especially in respect of medical solutions and food products," he added.
