Welcome speech by Piotr Harasimowicz, CRO of the Polish Investment and Trade Agency in Vietnam. Presentation about the Vietnamese agri-food market and business culture in Vietnam by Krzysztof Hajłasz, Market Entry Expert of the Polish Investment and Trade Agency in Vietnam. According to Hajlasz, Poland imports a great deal of rice, fruit and oil products from other European countries but very little from Việt Nam, which is highly capable of supplying these products. For instance, many of the rice products that Poland imports every year from European countries are also imported from Việt Nam to such countries, then packaged in smaller bags and sold to Poland. Việt Nam also imports a great deal of meat, wood and hard liquor from many countries, but very little from Poland directly, despite their high quality.
"In addition, Vietnamese and Polish companies do not understand each other well," Hajlasz said. As such, PAIH wants to help both sides learn more about one another and facilitate direct trade, removing intermediaries.

The forum has been followed by the B2B Meeting between Vietnamese and Polish companies. The Polish representatives were: Ewa-Bis Co.Ltd. (exporter of fruit and vegetables), Mieszko Jsc. (sweets and confectionery), Lei Food and drinks and Goslawice – Antonius Caviar.

During the days spending in Vietnam, the delegation also will participate in Food and Hotel Expo Vietnam 2019 at Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center, Ho Chi Minh City from 24-26 April 2019
