WHO WE ARE
WE SUPPORT BUSINESS IN POLAND AND ROMANIA!
The idea of a Polish-Romanian Bilateral Chamber of Commerce first came into discussion in 2015, as a response to a high interest in Romanian and Polish business, expressed by individuals, companies and investment funds and as a natural development of the already existing Polish-Romanian Business Club.
Since the foundation, the Chamber was designed to be a business orientated initiative, meant to bring an added value to Polish-Romanian economic relations. All strategies, actions, activities and events keep a strong bilateral component which brings ideas and business together.
The first General Meeting of the Chamber took place on the 9th of June 2015, in the presence of H.E. Mr. Lazăr Comănescu, the Foreign Minister of Romania and H.E. Mr. Witold Waszczykowski, the Foreign Minister of Poland, being hosted by the Embassy of Romania in the Republic of Poland. The event was attended by representatives of over 30 Romanian and Polish companies and Polish and Romanian government officials.
We are a trustable partner for Polish and Romanian business and we try to deliver best results by providing information about the framework in which it is possible to start a business in Poland and Romania, by preparing opinions, analyzis and market reports and by indicating the potential of trade and the economic areas where the creation of new ventures can generate growth and profit.

WHAT OUR BOARD SAYS
The Chamber gives the opportunity to meet with key representatives of various business sectors. After each event, new contacts are created and it is interesting to see how business ideas emerge from different talks. I am thrilled to be involved in such a vibrat, connected and results orientated organization.
Being one of the founders of the Polish-Romanian Bilateral Chamber is a special privilege and a one-of- a-kind opportunity. The Chamber was born out of the increasing complexity and demanding needs of the Romanian and Polish business communities which are growing ever faster and interacting with each other more than ever before.
