How has the Chamber supported you to date and what more can we do to assist your needs?

We are relatively new member of the Chamber but appreciate platform of networking that the Chamber is creating and warm welcome that we experienced. We appreciate being part of such interesting and kind group.

We participated in very productive and interesting webinar concerning public tenders by various international donors organized by the Chamber (Business Opportunities Seminar with the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development in cooperation with Enterprise Ireland and 2021 Economic Outlook for Poland) which we found very well organized and informative and can recommend to all members if similar webinar is organized in the future.

Thank you for making it possible to present and promote Miller Canfield during the month of March among the members, upon lapse of that month we will share our findings and potential further ideas concerning assistance that Chamber may provide to the members and ways in which we can contribute.

Thoughts regarding the business environment in Poland in 2021?

2021 will be a challenging, but also full of opportunities, year. We may face deepening of reorganization of business environment in the result of its accelerated evolution caused by COVID resulting in slowing down certain areas and vibrant development of certain new areas of economic activity. Polish economy despite pandemic and political situation shows its fundamental strength and presents a lot of opportunities for entrepreneurs and paradoxically, current pandemic situation may result in opening more and more interesting opportunities.

Any advice for new businesses starting up?

Be optimistic and build on solid foundations of good legal advice!
