Polish companies on international markets
The volume of sales of goods manufactured in Poland to foreign countries is continually growing. This is the third year in a row with a surplus of export over import. Most Polish enterprises enter international market with typical commercial exchange.
Some of them undertake more advanced forms of cooperation, such as: subcontracting, cooperation within B+R or joint venture. To keep up with the companies from countries with strong international business relations, institutional changes are being introduced.
Among other things, Polish Investment and Trade Agency and a new network of foreign commercial outpost were created. It was adjusted to the needs of our enterprises and the directions the world economy is developing. The goal is to increase the quality of service and volume of assets for pro-export and investment actions.
Non-refundable assets are available within EU Funds. Eastern Poland and regional programmes offer subsidies for developing and realisation of plans for conquering foreign markets.
There are trainings and workshops available, the purpose of which is taking good advantage of participation in trade fairs and business missions. Companies may also count on developing a new business model and assistance in preparing the products from the marketing and formal point of view to the requirements of the country they want to sell to, e.g. obtaining the necessary permits or certificates.
Services of specialised advisors are also available. There are e.g. Investor and Exporter Service Centres across the country where you may order reports on selected countries and industries.
