Polish delegation presented country as an attractive outsourcing destination in New York

On October 12th representatives from Poland, Silesia region stayed in New York to promote Poland and the Silesian region in southern Poland. The Silesian delegation and the representatives of the Polish Consulate in New York were working together to convince US businesses and potential investors to consider Poland a valuable business partner.

The delegation included Mateusz Skowroński, Manager of Investor Assistance Centre. Mateusz, was assisted by Michał Urbankowski, Consul at the Trade and Investment Section of the Consulate General of Poland in New York and Wanda Lopuch PhD, President of Global Sourcing Council, who organized the visit.

The event was broadcast over the internet to 12 000 recipients around the world, and was covered by New York Times. Mateusz Skowroński, member of the Katowice City Hall, presented the offer of Poland's Silesian region and promoted Katowice as a reliable partner in business. Mariusz Tomaka of DisplayLink and a member of the US-Polish Trade Council was interviewed and given the opportunity to introduce US businesses to take a closer look at Poland and Silesia as a potential service provider.

Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) has been growing steadily in Poland for the last couple of years and we anticipate this trend to accelerate in the future. At this time Poland, still considered a market with untapped potential, was a home to approximately 370 BPO and Shared Service Centers operating and expanding around the entire country. It is estimated that by the end of this year- 2010 about 60 000-70 000 people will be employed in this sector.
