PACKAGE ONE - Doing Good Business with Polish companies
Doing good business with Polish companies is quite a challenge for both sides. The decision to enter the new market seems particularly hard to take for foreign companies - both small and medium-sized - and those which do go ahead experience day-to-day problems. In contrast to your home market, which you know inside out with all its advantages and disadvantages, the administrative and regulatory background of doing business in Poland, the regional differences in mentality - natural as they may be - or eventually the language barrier are very often reasons for delaying the decision to start working with Polish companies. Yet, the attractiveness of the Polish market, consumer behavior patterns largely similar to the developed economies should become the basis for business involvement.
