CEO Briefing Poland in 2022

In the new year, it's a BPCC tradition to invite a panel of CEOs to discuss prospects for the year ahead for business in Poland. This year – the BPCC’s 30th anniversary – will be no exception. Like last year, the event will be held online; this year's expert panel consists of PwC's chief economic advisor and four CEOs representing different business sectors. Join us, then, to hear how the Polish economy is expected to fare in terms of new investments, prospects for key macroeconomic indicators, green transformation, recovery from the pandemic and its aftermath, and how foreign perceptions of the Polish government may be swaying investment decisions.

The panellists:

  • Prof. Witold Orłowski, chief economic advisor, PwC Poland
  • Bogdan Kucharski, CEO, BP Polska
  • Paweł Kusiak, deputy CEO, HSBC Polska
  • Mateusz Bonca, CEO, JLL Polska
  • Marc Burrage, CEO, Hays Polska

Questions to be addressed by the panellists:

  • Macroeconomic indicators published in late December suggest that industrial production is growing faster than expected; stagflation doesn’t look like being a threat to the Polish economy. What predictions can be expected for GDP growth for Poland for this year? How will Polski Ład (‘the Polish Deal’) affect businesses – especially foreign multinationals present in Poland?
  • Will 2022 see the beginning of the end of the Covid-19 pandemic? What would be the short- and long-term implications for public health and the healthcare sector?
  • Coping with inflation: surging costs of raw materials, logistics and energy, rapidly rising wages mean companies are forced to raise prices, stoking an inflationary spiral. How will business manage in a new, high-inflation environment? Do you think the NBP is taking enough action to tackle inflation?
  • The Polish government might have backed down on ‘Lex TVN’, but there are still many flashpoints with the EU, just as the next EU budget is being determined. How confident are investors that a compromise will be reached, or will a Poland-EU clash result in less EU funding for 2022-27?
  • A return to the office across Poland in 2022? To what extent is hybrid or even full-remote working going to replace traditional models? How will this affect the real estate and construction sectors?
  • COP27 takes place in Egypt this autumn; countries and companies will be spelling out how they intend to reach their net-zero targets. Significant numbers of businesses have set out ambitious pledges to cut their carbon footprint – but how will this look like in practice, in Poland, in 2022?
  • How will inward investment into Poland look this year? Can we expect more manufacturers looking to near-shore, more shared-service centres and BPOs? Will more UK firms be setting up their EU operations in Poland? How do foreign investors perceive the political environment right now?

    The meeting will be conducted in English.

Participation is open to BPCC Members and invited guests only.

The meeting will be held online on Zoom Webinar.

Relacja z wydarzenia

It is a long-standing BPCC tradition to invite a panel of CEOs to discuss prospects for the year ahead for business in Poland. This year – the BPCC’s 30th anniversary – was no exception. Like last year, the event was held online; this at least allows those who missed the event to watch the recording on YouTube. As is the case each year, the CEO Briefing gives participants the chance to hear how the Polish economy is expected to fare in terms of new investments with a focus on the key macroeconomic indicators and investor perception of Poland as a location for business.
