On November 13th the Chamber hosted an interesting presentation by Maciej Reluga at the Bristol Hotel. The presentation focussed on the outlook for the Polish economy in light of domestic and global trends - and likely shifts. The presentation was followed by a lively discussion.
The Second Annual IGCC (International Group of Chambers of Commerce) soccer tournament was won this year by a 'Germany 2'! A team representing the German Chamber of Commerce in Poland. The team won after a nerve-racking encounter with the Irish Chamber's side - with cheering fans treated to great goals and near-misses.
We look forward to resolving the matter at the Euro 2014 IGCC tournament.
The Irish team won the inaugural inter-chamber competition in 2013.
