A business association called the U.S.-Poland Business Council led a business mission to Warsaw Oct. 18-19 aiming to develop bilateral economic and commercial relations between the United States and Poland.

The mission marked the official launch of the Council, which was founded in the summer by 17 U.S.-based multinational companies: The AES Corporation, The Boeing Company, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Eli Lilly, ExxonMobil, Fluor Corporation, International Paper, Marathon Oil, Owens-Illinois, Inc., PHRMA, Raytheon Company, The Shaw Group Inc., Smithfield Foods, Inc., The Timken Company, US Steel and Westinghouse Electric Co.

The mission focused on the growing opportunities and potential offered by conducting business in Poland and emphasized areas of mutual benefit and interest. Meetings included discussions of bilateral market access restrictions and European Commission regulations and policies.

The purpose of the meetings was to cultivate strategic alliances with key officials in the Polish government, the U.S. embassy, as well as private-sector business associations based in Warsaw. The business delegation was hosted by Poland’s Deputy Prime Minister Waldemar Pawlak and Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski.

“Poland was the only country in the European Union to experience positive economic growth in the past year and is well positioned to take the helm of the presidency of the European Council beginning in July 2011,” said Eric Stewart, president of the U.S.-Poland Business Council. “This trip provides a unique opportunity to learn directly from the Polish leadership their plans for guiding Europe through these tough economic times.”

The U.S.-Poland Business Council is a Washington-based non-profit organization that promotes commercial relations between the United States and Poland. The mission of the Council is to enhance U.S.-Poland trade and investment, advance the U.S.-Poland bilateral relationship, and educate the public about its importance. To achieve its aims, the Council plans to sponsor policy conferences, briefing sessions and major events featuring senior U.S. and Polish officials, academics and business leaders.
