On May 14, 2019, Green Gate Consulting’s President and CEO, Agnes Pawelkowska, began a two-week long trade mission to Poland with the representatives of the Greater Richmond Partnership (GRP). The main purpose and goal of that trip was to showcase Central Virginia in Poland and to increase the investment and presence of the Polish companies in the Richmond, Virginia region.
Green Gate Consulting pre-selected seventeen Polish companies ready to invest in the U.S. market and organized individual meetings for the GRP’s representatives with these companies. The meetings took place in eight different Polish cities to include: Warsaw, Narew, Lodz, Zdunska Wola, Poznan, Katowice, Krakow and Wroclaw.
In addition to the individual meetings with Polish companies, the GRP’s representatives participated in an annual event called the American Day, which took place in Katowice, Poland. During that event, they had an opportunity to present the central Virginia and the Richmond region to a broader audience. It was an excellent opportunity to showcase the state of Virginia. The presentation was enthusiastically received by the audience, who followed up with numerous questions.
The representatives of the state of Virginia found the trade mission to Poland both interesting and fruitful. It produced many valuable contacts that GRP will gradually develop. GGC was honored to be a part of that mission. We are looking forward to continue working with the state of Virginia and brining Polish investment to the state.
