What is Polish-American Leadership Summit?

The Polish-American Leadership Summit: Polish Investment Zone is the most important event for American-Polish economic relations in 2018 and the first such initiative involving Polish political and business leadership directly.

From February 9th-11th, 300 Polish and American business leaders are meeting in #Miami to discuss knowledge transfer between the USA and Central Europe as well as strategic energy security and its economic implications for the region. The innovative concept of this summit is focused on creating direct business relations between these two strongly allied regions.
