PAIH creates Polish Trade Offices
Polish Investments and Trade Agency (PAIH) is building a network of its trade offices in Poland, which are to be a tool to reach entrepreneurs and support them in starting foreign expansion.
PAIH recognizes that Polish companies are increasingly aware of the availability of instruments to support foreign expansion. However, the low participation of the SME sector in the internationalisation of activities is still noticeable. The creation of a network of trade offices in Poland, will allow PAIH to reach out more easily to entrepreneurs, in order to present the Agency’s range of support services. This, in turn, will directly contribute to showing them which markets they can reach with their products and what export strategy will be best for them to take.
The offices will be created in cooperation with the Special Economic Zones (SEZ) and entities from the PFR Group. Ultimately, there are plans to open twelve, nine of which will be opened this year. The first three offices located in Wrocław, Opole and Katowice will open in June 2023.
A regional presence will make it possible to better serve the needs of exporters, as well as identify those who can exploit their growth potential more effectively. One of the priorities will also be to strengthen cooperation with local economic and industry organizations. The areas of activity of the regional offices will also include the education of SMEs in the field of export and providing companies with information on foreign markets.
