Japan is currently the third largest Asian trade partner for Poland with turnover reaching approximately €3bn. “I encourage Japanese entrepreneurs to increase the realisation of projects in Poland,” said Jerzy Pietrewicz of the Polish Ministry of Economy, during the opening of the Polish-Japanese Economic Forum. The meeting took place on 27 February 2015 in Tokyo and was a key part of Bronisław Komorowski’s programme of visits in Japan. Deputy Minister Pietrewicz pointed out that Poland is an attractive location for investment within Europe. “Japanese companies have noticed the opportunities that result from investing in our country. Nearly 300 enterprises with Japanese capital have been registered in Poland, and the cumulative value of Japanese investments in Poland has exceeded $1.5bn,” he said, “I believe that a better understanding of our investment possibilities as well as the strengths of the Polish economy will result in market growth.” he added. Deputy Minister Pietrewicz has also stressed that providing the best conditions for investment in strategic fields of the economy is among the top priorities of the Ministry of Economy. In trying to meet investor expectations we have created a number of tools supporting the development of investment in Poland. We have implemented, among others, new regulations that simplify and expedite the process of undertaking business in Poland,” he said. Special Economic Zones play an important part in supporting entrepreneurship as they offer beneficial tax breaks, or sites ready for construction,” he added. During his stay in Japan, Pietrewicz met with the Prime Minister of Japan Shinzō Abe and representatives of Japanese business.

The main aim of the meeting was to investigate the possiblities of implementing the results of a research project, conducted since 2013 by AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków and Tokyo University, concerning technologies for drying lignite.
