    Polish-Albanian Economic Forum

     

    During the visit of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland Ms. Beata Szydło in Albania a Polish-Albanian Economic Forum was held. The idea to organize the Forum came from Ministry of Development of the Republic of Poland. Its implementation was assigned to the Embassy of Poland in Tirana and the Department of Trade and Investment of the Embassy of Poland in Rome.

     

    The Polish business delegation was represented by presidents of the Polish Agency for Information and Foreign Investment, the National Chamber of Commerce and dozens of other well-known Polish companies. Their Albanian counterparts consisted of CEOs of the Albanian Investment Development Agency, Union of Chambers of Commerce and Industry of the Republic of Albania, leading business associations, representatives of a large number of Albanian companies interested in the Polish market. In total, Polish-Albanian Economic Forum was attended by over a hundred participants. Prime-Ministers of Poland and Albania were the guests of honor of the Polish-Albanian Economic Forum. In his address to the participants PM of Albania Edi Rama stressed that Albania is counting on economic cooperation with Poland, arguing that Albania offers every facility for Polish businessmen. Albanian PM encouraged to invest in agriculture, energy and oil extraction.

     

    PM of Poland Beata Szydło assured of Poland’s support of the integration of Albania to European Union. She expressed great satisfaction of her visit to Tirana along with Polish businessmen, foreseeing very large potential for developing economic cooperation between Poland and Albania. Polish PM noted that cooperation with Albania is consistent with the interests of the Polish economy. Poland wants to increase Polish export offer. Apart from agriculture, tourism and energy Poland counts on the cooperation in the mining industry and environmental protection. Beata Szydło pointed to the development of trade on both sides, but at the same time stressed that the possible potential is much greater than the current trade exchange level. PM of Poland pointed to the imminent reorganization of Polish institutions supporting the Polish business abroad, emphasizing the concern of the government to support the efforts of domestic companies in economic expansion.

     

    During the Polish-Albanian Economic Forum "Agreement on cooperation between the Albanian Investment Development Agency and the Polish Agency for Information and Foreign Investment" and "Agreement on cooperation between the Association of Chambers of Commerce and Industry of the Republic of Albania and the Polish National Chamber of Commerce” were signed in the presence of both PMs. The Polish export offer in the fields of energy, mining, production of buses, construction and agricultural vehicles, furniture, food processing was presented. According to the participants, the Forum and B2B formula meetings were a great opportunity for business representatives of both countries to establish direct contacts and to discuss possible future cooperation.
