News: Anglo-Polish business conference in Rotherham


Rotherham is to play host to a national event next week that brings together British and Polish entrepreneurs.

According to research by The Centre for Entrepreneurs, of all nationalities who have set up businesses in the UK, Poles rank number six. More than 21,000 Poles have set up nearly 22,000 companies in the UK, while another 65,000 Poles are self-employed.

The event on May 20 is taking place at Rotherham United's AESSEAL New York Stadium and is being hosted by the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), in association with the Trade and Investment Promotion Section at Embassy of the Republic of Poland in London. It has been developed by Rotherham-based entrepreneur, Marek Niedzwiedz.

The free to attend event will cover topics such as the important role played by Poles in UK, business support in Rotherham, business and cultural differences between Polish and English plus opportunities for networking and introductions.

Gordon Millward, Regional Chairman of the FSB, said: "The FSB finds itself once more in the vanguard of developing international business relations when we present this important National Conference, and we are delighted that it is taking place in Rotherham.

"With the theme of "Linking British and Polish SMEs," this event aims to assist the integration of the dynamic, enterprising Polish business community within the resurgent UK economy and open up the potential for innovative inter-trading opportunities.

"We would encourage as many local businesses as possible to come and meet with their Polish counterparts, many of whom are new to the business world and new to the UK. This is a prime opportunity to demonstrate to the emerging UK Polish business community that Rotherham is a great place to do business."

The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) is the UK's largest business organisation representing around 200,000 small businesses.
