Poland-Ukraine Business Meeting kicks off in Gdańsk
The Poland-Ukraine Business Meeting has officially kicked off on Thursday, 26 May, in Gdańsk. During the two days, 26 and 27 May, the Polish city will be a base for establishing closer business contacts between Polish and Ukrainian companies to arrange new logistic solution export of goods from Ukraine and the import of materials and equipment needed to rebuild the Ukrainian infrastructure and economy.
The military aggression of Russia against Ukraine disrupted many logistic connections in that country. Poland has many options to become a new gateway for the Ukrainian exporters, shippers and freight forwarders. To this end, IntermodalNews, the Port of Gdańsk Authority and the city of Lviv have jointly organised a dedicated event that has kicked off on the morning of Thursday, 26 May.
“It is a great pleasure for us to organise this business meeting in a very short time. However, I would prefer to have no cause for arranging such an event. You know what I mean and I hope you share my point of view. However, we are here and let’s use this time as far efficiently as possible,” said Piotr Klimek, CEO of IntermodalNews Sp. z o.o., in his foreword at the conference.
The Poland-Ukraine Business Meeting has become possible due to several sponsors: the USAID Competitive Economy Program (CEP), Langowski Logistics, DB Cargo, Captrain Polska, CTL Logistics, Clever Logistics, PKP Cargo Connect, Euroterminal Sławków, Real Logistics, Polferries (Polska Żegluga Bałtycka). The event was also supported by the Ministry of Infrastructure of Poland, the Office of Rail Transport (UTK) and the Polish International Freight Forwarders Association (PISiL).
