Every relationship has milestones that are key points of change or development. Last week’s U.S.-Poland Business Summit was just such a milestone in the U.S.-Polish business relationship that we are proud to have organized with the U.S.-Poland Business Council out of Washington D.C. and the Polish Agency for Investment and Trade.
The Summit brought over 400 participants to the Marriott Hotel for a day of talks and meetings. The Summit was opened by the President of the Republic of Poland, Andrzej Duda, and it was closed by the Prime Minister of Poland, Mateusz Morawiecki. In between, we had the participation of top officials from the ministries of Entrepreneurship & Technology, Investment & Development, Foreign Affairs, Finance, Defense, Energy, Environment, Infrastructure, and Health.
On the U.S. side, we had tremendous support from the Department of Commerce and Assistant Secretary Erin Walsh, as well as, the U.S. Embassy team and Ambassador Jones. The Summit served to highlight the special relationship our countries already have and the opportunities going forward on both sides of the Atlantic. The talks were fruitful and the atmosphere for further cooperation was encouraging.
