The boosting of Polish exports to Belarus, the establishment of a Polish-Belarusian IPO Centre for training and the potential involvement of Polish companies in privatisation in Belarus – these are the main points of Polish-Belarusian economic cooperation that were laid out during the visit of Deputy Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki to the XX Dobrososedstvo Economic Forum in Minsk.
Around 150 Polish enterprises, representatives of Polish companies traditionally cooperating with Belarus, but also entrepreneurs looking for new contacts and opportunities beyond Poland’s eastern border, took part in the Economic Forum. Piotr Stolarczyk, the Vice President of the Management Board of Export Credit Insurance Corporation (KUKE), was among participants of the meetings.
Poland is currently the third trade partner of Belarus, the third biggest exporter to Belarus and the ninth largest investor. For Belarus, on the other hand, Poland is its sixth export market. This is a good starting point for the further development of trade and investments between the two countries.
