Enhancing Poland-US collaboration in small business initiatives – challenges and perspectives for the future

The idea of this workshop has been developed by the Trade and Investment Section in consultations with the Ministry of Economy, Polish American Congress and Polish Chamber of Commerce as well as the leaders of Polish American business community throughout  the United States. Renewed interest in trade and international investment on both sides of the Atlantic has provided us with new opportunities. However, to be able to take advantage of these developments and fully explore them on an institutional and business level, more collaboration between parties is required and necessary. Better communication on new and emerging opportunities is one of the key issues, that could yield concrete benefits for both economies such as  increased trade volume, US SMEs’ investments in Poland, and a growing number of Polish companies establishing their foothold on the American soil.
