On the 19th of May 2018 another field meeting of the Management Board of the European Business Club Poland took place. The theme of the meeting was to discuss the plan of work of the Organisational Committee in the current year as well as international co-operation of the Club. The meeting was held in a Tourist Resort “Targowski Dwór” situated in an idyllic and picturesque place in Mazury called Targowo, beside Szczytno, in the estate of Bartosz Gołębiowski who is a son of the member of the Management Board – Czesław Gołębiowski.

In the part dedicated to international co-operation the following invited guests from Bulgaria took part: Professor at the University of Sophia –  Wladimir Atanasow (former Minister for Science and Education as well as the Ambassador of Bulgaria to Slovenia), Swetla Zlatarska – former attaché in the Embassy of Bulgaria in Warsaw ,as well as Daria Tataj PhD. the founder and director of Tataj Innovation – global crowsourcing company.

Prof. W. Atanasow in his speech thank for the invitation to this meeting and emphasized the interest in economic co-operation with our country. He also was grateful for the enthusiasm and friendship with which he got from Polish entrepreneurs which caused that even with greater pleasure he will promote Polish entrepreneurs in Bulgaria. He also passed the wishes of development and success for entrepreneurs in the European Business Club Poland through the Management Board.

Daria Tataj PhD. Discussed in detail the chosen issues from her book published in the United States „Innovation and entrepreneurship: A Growth Model for Europe Beyond the Crisis”. The book researches the process of creating innovation and proposes  a model to create innovations on a mass scale. Being based on on new research and extensive experience in the European Institute of Innovation and Technology Daria Tataj PhD. describes the dynamic architecture of global innovation networks, the way in which those networks mingle between themselves and how the ability to switch in between them leads to accumulation of talent, knowledge, skills and capital. Thanks to the analysis of innovation in the United States, China and especially Europe, the book answers the question why innovation centres are established and how this process can be repeated. If we want to create innovations as general directors, entrepreneurs, politicians or university leaders, this book will show precise mechanisms which will allow innovation centres to attract worldwide talents, risk capital and acquire knowledge.

A very hard working and constructive meeting of the Management Board was concluded by a great concert organised in Święta Lipka and a nice and charming evening in a beautiful ballroom of “Targowski Dwór” organised by the welcoming hosts. The guests were served delicacies by the Resort “Targowski Dwór” which also offers massages, relaxation in a mini spa: sauna and jacuzzi.

Afterwards the Ambassador Mr. Ajay Bisaria gave an extended presentation on the economic situation of his country and its position in the world as well as put it in the context of current co-operation between our countries. DSC_0036 The most important issue which has a significant impact on the development of bilateral co-operation are changes in law being implemented in India due to which bureaucratic barriers will be abolished. He indicated industrial sectors where the co-operation with Poland would have a special meaning i.e.: energy sector, communication technologies, food industry, health sector, chemical industry. He also tried to convince that India is a market for those entrepreneurs “hungry for success” as well as for those looking for professional development. He emphasized that his country is a perfect base for building new, more intensive economic relations or fast development of the ones already existing.

After the Ambassador’s speech a very interesting discussion took place that ended in individual talks of entrepreneurs with our guests. This will surely be helpful in making decisions about co-operation on the Indian market.

„Personality of the Year” award is a great honor for me and at the same time the culmination of all the efforts, initiatives and projects to support the development of the MICE industry, carried out for nearly twenty years of my work. I have to say it was a time full of challenges, but also satisfaction of the creation of new standards and best practices for the entire meetings industry. On one hand, in my every day work with professional organizations such as the Association of the Event Industry and Polish Chamber of Exhibition Industry, I strive to integrate the MICE industry and to promote Poland, as an interesting tourist and business destination. On the other hand the EXPO XXI Warszawa, with which I am associated for 14 years, has increased its surface and modernized the offer, built a reliable team of specialists and partnered with the organizers of big international events, thus promoted to the rank of the most well-known facility in Warsaw. Now is the time for the activation of cooperation between facilities like EXPO XXI Warszawa, event organizers, and local authorities. I believe that the Polish meetings industry is the best ambassador of our country abroad and, therefore, I set such a goal for myself for the next few months. I take this prize as a good augury to continue a hard work. –commented Żaneta Berus.

The idea behind „Personality of the Year” contest is to honor the people who have shown a special commitment to the development of the MICE industry in Poland in the past year. Nominees are distinguished by their professionalism in action, creativity, business efficiency, application of the principles of professional ethics, high quality services, contribution to the integration and development of the industry – also through their membership in organizations and associations – as well as the high competences, confirmed by certificates and awards. The winners receive a statuette and the title of „Personality of the Year” in four categories: Principal, Organizer, Manager of a venue and Subcontractor. „Personality of the Year” contest is the only project in Poland in which candidates for the award are nominated directly through the participants of the industry. Each company, agency, organization and association may, through a special form, nominate three persons for the prize. After counting the votes, 10 people who received the highest score in each category, goes to the second stage. The selection of the final winners is made by the Jury, whose members are selected from the laureates of the previous editions of the contest, representatives of associations and professional organizations, as well as external experts appointed by the organizer.

Chinese Ambassador visits the European Business Club Poland.

On 19 January, at the invitation of Mr. Janusz Cieslak, the President of the EBC Poland, our Association hosted Mr. Xu Jian, Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China in Poland. China  appears for Polish entrepreneurs as an economy with great opportunities hence the interest of this market is enormous. Full conference room of Czarny Kot – My Warsaw Residence confirmed this thesis. Ambassador Xu Jian was accompanied by Liu Lijuan, Commercial Counsellor of the Embassy together with other members of the Embassy’s staff, as well as a delegation of the representatives of Chinese companies, among others, Mr. Li Xiaobo, CEO of Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (Europe), and Mr. Wang Weijing,, PR Director in Huawei.

In his welcome speech President Janusz Cieslak recalled that the first joint venture in China was established in 1951 and it has been Polish-Chinese company Chipolbrok which at a meeting represented its CEO Mr. Liu Shanghai. On the Polish side the meeting was attended by among others: Mr. Roman Jagieliński former Deputy Prime Minister and currently the President of the Fruit Group ROJA, Mrs. Anna Kalata, former Minister of Labor and now the owner of the KALATA TV, Mrs. Barbara Misterska-Dragan, former Deputy Minister of Treasury and now the President of Misters Audytor Adviser and the only in Poland Honorary Citizen of Beijing Mr. Zdzislaw Góralczyk, former Ambassador to China, currently the President of Polish-Chinese Friendship Association.

DSC_0019In his speech, Ambassador Xu Jian presented the current state of China’s economy and prospects for the development of trade relations between our countries, indicating the reasons which prevent its rapid growth. When the time for questions and comments from the audience came, a real economic dialogue between Poland and China had started. Nearly 1.5 hour conversation, not only gave the participants a unique experience, but also built a belief that there is a huge potential for growth in trade. Prospective contractors must, however, get to know each other and build common ground for agreement. That is one of the reasons why European Business Club Poland plans to organize a trade mission to China in the second half of this year. This mission will be the consequence of a visit to China, held from 30 November – 6 December 2014, by the President of EBC Poland Janusz Cieslak and a member of the Association Mrs. Barbara Misterska – Dragan. The aim of the visit was to explore the possibility of increasing the export of Polish goods to China and establishing contacts with interested companies. Thanks to previously acquired contacts, members of this year’s mission will be well prepared for the meetings with definite Chinese companies interested in trading with Polish exporters.

The last point of the meeting was the exchange of business cards and individual conversations which lasted late into the evening.
