Net FDI Inflow Positive
The net inflow of foreign direct investment to Poland after the first two months of this year was positive at over 1.7 billion euros, the Economy Ministry said. This means that incoming funds exceeded those withdrawn from companies and debt securities. In the same period last year, Poland’s net FDI inflow was negative at over 2.6 billion euros.


Training Planes for Air Force
Four foreign companies seeking to supply training aircraft for the Polish air force will be invited to submit bids in a tender worth around zl.1.5 billion, the Defense Ministry has said. The suitors are Aero Vodochody of the Czech Republic, Italy’s Alenia Aermacchi, Britain’s BAE Systems, and Lockheed Martin UK. By mid-January next year, the Polish military wants to place an order for eight new light jets complete with an integrated pilot training system for F-16 fighter jets operated by the Polish air force.


Drilling in the Baltic
Balin Energy, a 50/50 joint venture established by Poland’s largest oil company, PKN Orlen, and Kuwait Energy, has started drilling for oil and gas in the Latvian zone of the Baltic Sea. The aim is to determine if deposits there contain enough hydrocarbons to justify extraction on an industrial scale, says PKN Orlen, which holds two licenses to drill in the area.


Meetings for Businesswomen
The Scandinavian-Polish Chamber of Commerce May 7 launched its new SPCC Businesswomen’s Network project targeted at its female members and aiming to enable them to exchange views and ideas.

The project involves a series of meetings, the first of which provided an opportunity to talk about what is positive about being a woman in the business environment and how to achieve a satisfying career and work/life balance.

Special guests included successful Polish businesswomen Lidia Głowacka-Michejda and Halina Piasecka.

The SPCC says future meetings will provide businesswomen with tools to develop their business and enjoy a new perspective on both business and life.
