Business Bigwigs at ABSL Conference
March 3, 2014
Could Poland become the world’s no.1 destination in terms of investment in advanced business services? If so, how can this happen and when? These issues will be discussed by participants including top Polish and international politicians and business leaders at the fifth ABSL conference May 22 and 23 in Poznań, western Poland.
TheAssociation of Business Service Leaders in Poland (ABSL) brings together companies from the shared service centers, business process outsourcing, information technology outsourcing and research and development sectors.
The annual ABSL conference attracts hundreds of participants including government officials and executives from financial institutions. Special guests at previous conferences have included former Polish president Lech Wałęsa and Poland’s central bank chief, Marek Belka.
This year’s conference will be held as Poland marks 10 years since it joined the European Union. The meeting will provide an opportunity to take a look at how the country’s economy has evolved throughout the last decade and since the introduction of a free market following the collapse of communism in 1989.
ABSL spokesman Tomasz Podolak said, “Poland has long attracted the attention of investors and leading analytical companies... and is now very much considered a mature and attractive destination for companies in the business services sector.
“At the same time, increasingly advanced processes are being managed in this country, which translates into generating high quality jobs for qualified specialists.”
