Participation in the “Diplomeeting” and meetings with entrepreneurs interested in operating in Kurdistan

On January 28, KRG Representative in Poland Ziyad Raoof attended “Diplomeeting”. This is annual event with presence of Polish state-authorities and foreign diplomats, organized by Polish Chamber of Commerce. This year, due to pandemic restrictions, the event was held in on-line mode. 

In the first part of the conference guests were welcomed by Andrzej Arendarski- head of Polish Chamber of Commerce, later speeches were given by Jarosław Gowin- deputy prime minister and minister of development, Paweł Jabłoński- deputy minister of foreign affairs and Paweł Borys- head of Polish Development Fund.

The second part of the event consisted of meetings between diplomats and Polish entrepreneurs. Ziyad Raoof had a series of online talks with representatives of Polish companies from various sectors interested in investments, exporting products to the Kurdistan Region and the entire Iraq and providing services on the local market. The large number of entrepreneurs who held on-line meetings with the KRG representative proves that despite the pandemic, the interest of Polish companies in expanding into Kurdistan Region is not diminishing.

In 2019 Polish Chamber of Commerce signed cooperation agreement with Kurdistan Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (KFCCI). Lest year the “Diplomeeting” was attended by KRG delegation headed by minister of agriculture Begard Dlshad and head of KRG Board of Investment, dr Mohammed Shukri.
