The Institute for Corporate Relations and Social Innovation to hold a “Poland Business Seminar” on January 19, 2022 (Wed), co-sponsored by Shiga University and the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Japan as part of its overseas expansion support project

With the ongoing pandemic of Covid-19, the EC and IMF forecast more than 4% of Poland’s GDP growth this year. Among the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, the number of local subsidiaries of Japanese companies is the largest, and the relationship between Japan and Poland is well established. In this seminar, we will introduce information on the bilateral relations between Poland and Japan, the advantages of investment convenience for overseas companies, and the attractiveness of tourism. We hope that the participating companies will have a positive image of Poland.


Date and time: Wednesday, January 19, 2022 13: 30 ~ 16: 30
