Wielkopolska Chamber of Industry and Commerce
Today, the greatest concern and goal of entrepreneurs associated with the Wielkopolska Chamber of Industry and Commerce is to transform the current economic system in such a way that it functions on solid market and competition principles.
Even before Poland became democratic, with the electoral victory of “Solidarity”, on June 4, 1989, the seeds of the development of subsequent individual entrepreneurship were born. The intention of the founders was to establish an economic chamber, but the subsequent regulations did not allow the possibility of such an organization. And so the “Wielkopolska Economic Society – Union of Employment Societies” was born, which after two years of a real struggle for registration, in March 1989, obtained the legal status.
The measure of the value and purpose of each organization is its social and economic utility. Since the first months of its activity, the Chamber of Industry and Commerce of Wielkopolska obtained the prestige and support of numerous companies in the Greater Poland region, which allowed it to create a strong economic lobby in this area.
OBJECTIVES OF THE WIELKOPOLSKA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: Representing and protecting the economic interests of the members of the Chamber. Cultivate the traditions of the Wielkopolska economy and promote and support citizens’ entrepreneurship as a basis for economic development. To assist the Chamber’s associates for economic, organizational and legal issues. Cooperation with state and local authorities in creating favorable conditions for commercial operations.
Inspiration and development of the economic cooperation of the members of the Chamber with foreign countries. Observance of best practices and appropriate behaviours in the relations between the members of the Chamber. Development of cultural, educational and training activities, training, sport and tourism, as well as social activities at the service of the integration of economic environments. Action to increase the competitiveness and innovation of companies in the Wielkopolska region.
