Poland currently ranks as Europe's sixth largest economy, maintaining a positive GDP growth estimated at 2% - 4% throughout the economic crisis. UKTI East Midlands is organising an insight visit open to companies from all industry sectors.
Poland, two hours away and served by low-cost airlines, has the largest consumer market of the countries new to the EU (38 million) with buoyant and growing spending power. In addition it is the largest recipient of EU funding in 2007-2013, driving huge infrastructure and cultural change. UK trade in goods increased from £1.6bn in 2005 to £4.2bn in 2011.
The insight visit will cost businesses just £99 + VAT and will include meetings and training at the British Embassy in Warsaw and an outline of the support networks that UKTI has available. It will also cover the dynamics of the Polish market including the political and economic structure, language and culture, and business/sector opportunities.
To be eligible businesses need to be a UK new or novice exporter that hasn’t been, or isn’t currently, part of the Passport to Export or Gateway to Global Growth programmes. Current export turnover should be less than 25% of which no more than 10% pro-active exports and overall turnover should be in excess of £100k.
