Congress of Expansive Exporters features discussions on the prospects for Polish businesses to go international

15 november 2023
International cooperation for exports, financing and securing foreign transactions and many other issues were discussed by specialists gathered for the Private Label Expo's accompanying event on Wednesday, 15 November, at the Targi Kielce Congress Centre

Marek Marzec, owner of the Ewa-Bis Group, pointed out that the Congress of Expansive Exporters makes people change their export-related perspective. – About 80% of Polish export goes to European Union countries. I hope that today's lectures and discussions give you the courage to enter other markets. Buyers can be found all over the world; you need to find an entrepreneur who has money. The latter is not easy, but possible. I hope that the examples offered today will encourage you to take action, emphasised Marek Marzec.  


Expo paticipation is one of the ways to reach new markets. The Targi Kielce president, Doctor Andrzej Mochoń, emphasised that the exhibition centre makes a "small contribution" to increasing Polish exports. – The Hosted Buyers program is one of the activities. Foreign buyers are invited to participate in B2B events. - For 13 years, buyers from many countries around the world have come to the Kids' Time toys and products for mother and child show. We hosted 24 buyers from Europe and Asia at the recent Expo. Seventy buyers from 30 countries participated in the Slavic B2Beauty cosmetics industry contracts. Each initiative is important, bearing in mind the fact that there is still a long way to go. Polish exports are approximately USD 50 billion, while Germany's exports account for USD 1 billion. For comparison, there are only twice as many inhabitants in Germany compared to Poland. Therefore, all initiatives are valuable, and there is and will be a place for them in Targi Kielce - said Doctor Andrzej Mochoń.  


Janusz Piechociński, president of the Polish-Asian Chamber of Commerce and member of the Parliament of the Republic of Poland, pointed to important challenges resulting from the current situation, such as wars. Externalities influence politics and diplomacy, the economy and the capabilities of companies. - 36 percent of products manufactured in Poland are exported. Moreover, export activities are becoming more and more complicated. Also, globalisation is changing its forms. It is necessary to open up to the world to stimulate Polish entrepreneurship. Openness will restore optimism. Without optimism, there is no effective, modern economy - explained President Janusz Piechociński.


Piechociński explained that it is necessary to know not only the economic conditions, but also the social and political moods in order to develop exports to a specific country. - There will be a better tomorrow for business, but there is one condition-  we must be better than ever before in history - emphasised Janusz Piechociński.


Marek Chrapek, the dean of the Świętokrzyskie Corps of Exporters, which deals with food products export highlighted the problem of selling semi-finished products abroad. – We should strive to process in Poland and sell the finished product – he emphasised.


The Congress of Expansive Exporters offered specific tips regarding entering new markets, details related to human resources and the tax system. Prospects for export development and expansion to distant markets were also discussed. Experts indicated where to look for opportunities to maintain high development dynamics in the future.
