PPCC and CCIP about Portuguese companies present in Poland

Since February 24th, the situation in Ukraine has shifted the global economy. Portugal and Poland, whose commercial relations are promoted by the Polish-Portuguese Chamber of Commerce (PPCC) and the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI), manage the interest of 200 member companies and share the experience that has been of the two countries’ economic relations.

In an interview with Executive Digest, Pedro Magalhães – Head of International Trade of CCIP – and Wojciech Baczyński – General Director of PPCC – have stated that, in general, all the Portuguese companies associated with the Polish-Portuguese Chamber of Commerce have kept their regular work while expressing the will to act and aid the Ukrainian population that arrives in Poland, from both corporate and individual agents. Amid the economic and commercial significative impact that some companies have felt, both Chambers have been doing customized support work for companies, clarifying the doubts, displaying information, and, most importantly, stimulating a direct contact and relation between Portuguese exporter companies and the central Polish importers, distributors, and clients.

“The opportunities keep coming, the market is still functioning and there is still the search for products and services made in Portugal”, both stated. The Directors recognize the advantage of being on top of the occurrences and thus being more prepared with the necessary means so that member companies can avoid less risk and, simultaneously, begin and swiftly grow their businesses in the Polish market.

DFJ Vinhos, RFF & Associados – Sociedade de Advogados, and Syone, member companies of the Polish-Portuguese Chamber of Commerce share their personal experience in the Polish market during this particular time.
