Brexit and export of Polish food to the UK

From 1 October, the UK government is introducing new border checks on animal and plant products; these will make export of food from Poland to the UK more complicated. This webinar, held in Polish for Polish food exporters, looked at what the new border checks would mean, and how to prepare for them. Michael Dembinski, the BPCC’s chief adviser, opened the meeting saying that for the most determined exporters, prepared to deal with all the new paperwork, there would be many new opportunities. As exports from western European trade partners falter, more and more companies are withdrawing from the UK market, and so gaps appear that Polish firms could enter. Having the right strategy and marketing plans is key, he said.

International Oktoberfest returns to Wrocław

After a break last year for the pandemic, Wrocław’s International Oktoberfest made its return on 10 September 2021. Back for the 16th time, it was held this year for sanitary reasons in the fresh-air surroundings of the Toya Golf and Country Club, a little way north of the city. The event was organised by the BPCC, the Polish-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (AHK Poland) and the Scandinavian-Polish Chamber of Commerce. Traditionally, the International Oktoberfest draws the largest business crowd from across the region, but this year, numbers were limited because of Covid-19. Nevertheless, after a year’s absence, it was good to meet in person and the event was enjoyed by all.

Developing the potential of Poland’s post-industrial land

The BPCC's Real Estate and Construction Policy Group met online on 22 June 2021 to discuss brownfield development – the remediation of land that had previously been used for industrial purposes. Given that most Polish cities have large swathes of such land, brownfield sites offer investors excellent locations, though cleaning up contamination is a challenge. The meeting considered the solutions involved in remediating and developing brownfield sites, showing on the basis of several case studies the benefits of such solutions.

Meeting up face to face – Nice to Meet You Again comes to Warsaw

The third of the BPCC’s Nice to Meet You series of business mixers was held in the Bristol Hotel, Warsaw, on the evening of 24 June 2021. Like the Wrocław and Poznań events held on the two previous Thursdays, the mixer once again attracted the maximum number of participants allowed by current sanitary regulations. Held in the patio outside the Bristol Hotel’s Moniuszko restaurant, the event was blessed by a dry interlude between a light shower and a heavy downpour. Once again, there was an overwhelming sense that people had come to enjoy the chance to meet up finally, to chat, to swap business cards, and to return to some semblance of normal life.

Like the Wrocław event held the week before, the mixer once again attracted the maximum number of participants allowed by current sanitary regulations, with a long reserve list of disappointed latecomers. Although the day had been hot, the evening sun dipped behind the behind the buildings, so mixer took place in the cool of the shade.
