EGGER Biskupiec at the 7th Polish Entrepreneurship Congress
On 24-25 October 2019 the 7th edition of the Polish Congress of Entrepreneurship took place. This year the host city of the meeting was Olsztyn. The event took place at the University of Warmia and Mazury, in the Conference and Training Centre.
The event was held under the honorary patronage of the Ministry of Family, Labour and Social Policy, the Polish Agency for Investment and Trade, the Polish Economic Society, the Polish Chamber of Commerce and the Conference of Rectors of Polish Technical Universities. The special guest of the event was Jurgen Tiedje - a representative of the European Commission for Research and Innovation.
Over 1000 people took part in the Congress. The thematic scope of the 7th Polish Entrepreneurship Congress included almost 30 discussion panels, which covered the most important issues from the point of view of the Polish and European economy. The topics covered issues of innovation, development of regional and local governments, modern business services, foreign expansion, higher education, energy, medicine or industry 4.0
The representative of EGGER Biskupiec at the Congress was Waldemar Zawiślak, who was invited to a discussion in the panel "Investor as a factor of change in the region". During the discussion, the issues of attractiveness of our country in the opinion of a foreign investor, investment incentives for companies, but also the impact of FDI on the development of the economy in the regional and local context were discussed. Our investment - a chipboard and worktops factory located in Biskupiec - is a perfect example illustrating the discussed topics. In his speeches, Waldemar Zawiślak, the EGGER Biskupiec Sales Director, presented the arguments that prompted us to choose the location in Warmia and how our presence affects the development of the nearby regions. The Mayor of Biskupiec, Kamil Kozłowski, listened to the discussion. He also emphasized the importance of the investment and our commitment to the life of the city.
