  • In 2014 Poland is continuing efforts to forge closer bilateral cooperation with African countries. On 7-11 April Deputy Minister Katarzyna Kacperczyk headed a Polish business mission to Senegal and Ghana. The delegation comprised representatives of nearly 40 Polish companies which are interested in establishing new business contacts with African partners. Key items on the deputy foreign minister's agenda were participation in the Poland-Senegal and Poland-Ghana Economic Forums, as well as meetings with business leaders and government officials. The visit by the deputy chief of Poland's diplomacy was covered by both countries' major media outlets, the list of which we present below:
     

    • Senegalese media


    The media in Senegal have devoted much attention to the Polish delegation's visit. The deputy chief of Poland's diplomacy spoke in the main news bulletin of RTS TV, and was quoted by the most important websites and newspapers (Le Quotidien, Le Soleil, Rue Publique), which reported at length on the Poland-Senegal Economic Forum and Deputy Minister Kacperczyk's meeting with the Senegalese president. The country's media also covered the signing of an agreement between the foreign ministries of Poland and Senegal, and the planned opening of a Senegalese Embassy in Warsaw.

    Information on the visit appeared in the leading media outlets, from the chief broadcaster Ghana TV and Tv3 Network channel, through radio stations (Citi 97.3 FM, Peace 104.3 FM) and newspapers, including the major daily Ghanaian Times, to online news services such as Ghana News Agency and Business & Financial Times Online. The Ghanaian media emphasized that Polish businesses are interested in investing in Ghana, and that Poland stands ready to share its experiences, which could come in handy when building Ghana's economy.

    The MFA has been cooperating on a regular basis with an ever growing group of Polish companies that are interested in expanding into African markets. The missions to Nigeria, Angola, the Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, South Africa, Zambia, Senegal and Ghana have brought together close to a hundred Polish firms, primarily SMEs. Polish foreign service posts have been helping our businesses by providing information and staging campaigns to promote Poland's economy. The Polish diplomacy supports entrepreneurs and their concrete projects (business transactions, investments) which require contacts with government agencies and diplomatic assistance. The Poland-Africa trade has clearly grown in recent years. In 2013 Poland's exports to Africa increased by 30% on the previous year, a result that made Africa the leader in export dynamics.
