Bronislaw Komorowski, the President of Poland, and a key high level Polish official opened the Polish-Georgian business forum on July 27. The forum aims to discuss opportunities for development projects, growth in exports and foreign direct investments.
In total, more than fifty delegates representing energy, construction, insurance, finance, food production and the engineering industry fields visited Georgia to share their experience and present investment plans with their Georgian colleagues.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Komorowski, highlighted the importance of developing economic and political relations between the two countries. “The friendship between Georgia and Poland is priceless […] we have to strive to achieve even more free markets in a time of democracy which is a difficult process but attainable.”
According to Komorowski, Poland is ready for closer economic cooperation with Georgia. He also encouraged Georgian businesses to list their companies stocks on the Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE). The WSE is one of the biggest stock exchanges in central Europe where international companies are traded.
Nika Gilauri, the Prime Minister of Georgia underscored in his speech, Poland’s active lobbyist role in the international arena, especially in the European Union and some factors that “are the premise for developing the mutual business cooperation between the countries.”
