    “It is heartening that despite the great geographical distance between our countries, we have been able to build a relation comparable to strategic partnership,” said Deputy Foreign Minister Katarzyna Kacperczyk inaugurating the Polish-Chilean Investment Seminar at Warsaw’s National Stadium on 17 July.

    The meeting’s agenda included discussing trade and investment possibilities, as well as assessing the conditions for running business activity on the Chilean market.


    The meeting was organised by KGHM in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Treasury, and the Embassy of Chile in Warsaw. The seminar was attended by Polish government officials and more than eighty Polish businessmen interested in Latin American markets.


    “Cooperation in the extractive industry is a basis for building long-lasting relations in other sectors. Our experience with Chile will pay off in further expansion to Latin American markets,” said Deputy Minister Kacperczyk in her address.


    According to the deputy chief of Poland’s diplomacy, it seems natural that Polish businesses expand to such sectors as transport, ICT services, construction and chemical industry.


    The KGHM’s copper, gold and molybdenum mine in Sierra Gorda, which is the biggest Polish foreign investment, is a good stepping stone for enhancing Poland-Chile economic, political, academic and scientific cooperation.


    According to Deputy Minister Kacperczyk, Polish businesses are just beginning to mark their presence in Chile. “In am confident that companies such as KGHM, as well as efforts taken by both Polish and Chilean administration will help Polish firms fully develop their potential,” said the deputy minister.


    In 2013, the volume of trade between Poland and Chile reached almost EUR 279 million. Polish exports to Chile amounted to EUR 73 million.
