The impact of FDI in Malopolska

 |  Category: Events

On 8th of June 2017, SPCleantech participated in a conference “The impact of Foreign Direct Investment in Malopolska Region” organized at the City Hall in Krakow.

The group of 14 Chambers of Commerce (IGCC), in cooperation with Polityka Insight, has prepared a special report on the influence of foreign investors on the Polish market. The organizers presented the report’s key results and data during the FDI Debate on that occasion.
