With the reestablishment of the Poland Embassy in the Philippines in 2018, and the resumption of operations of the Polish Foreign Trade Office in 2019, the Polish Foreign Trade Office in Manila sees more Polish products coming to the Philippines with the help of enterprising Filipinos.

Speaking to THEPHILBIZNEWS, Bartek Wasiewski, head of Poland’s Foreign Trade Office in Manila cites possible ways to bring more investment and products from Poland to the Philippines.

“There are many areas of cooperation between the Philippines and Poland that can be explored, whether in trade or investment. If you come to think of it, there are many Filipinos doing home business or online selling. In this area, Filipinos can see what Poland can offer to increase their product portfolio such as cosmetics, confectioneries and whatever a businessman or company wants to import from Poland,” he said.

On the part of the Polish investment opportunities, Wasiewski noted that it all depends on the interest of the would-be Filipino venture partner or company.

“We will bring more opportunities from Poland to the Philippines. I know that there are many individuals or companies are also curious about what Poland has to offer in terms of business and investments. You have been to Poland and witnessed what we have in terms of education, business, technology, tourism and other products beyond our mouthwatering Kielbasa,” he added.

“While the Polish Foreign Trade Office here in Manila is not under the Polish Embassy of the Philippines, we are closely working with Ambassador Jaroslaw Szczepankiewicz and the Polish Embassy. We are here to answer any questions related to trade and investment. We will also be coming up with interesting events about technology initially and then as we go along, we will create more events based on demand or need,” Wasiewski explained.

“I am very happy working with the Filipino businessmen and companies. In my recent meeting with the officials of Philippine Association of Meat Processors, Inc.(PAMPI), I am inspired by their enthusiasm and at the same time very impressed. I am hoping and praying that soon we would be able to do more collaborations with them. I also look forward to working with more local chambers in the Philippines and be able to know how we can support them and what is their business or investment opportunities looking from Poland,” he said.
