On February 27 and 28, 2019 an event of a conceptually new format called “IBEC Days” took place in the Republic of Poland under the auspices of the International Bank for Economic Co-operation (IBEC).
This important business dialogue was organized by IBEC in collaboration with the Polish-Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PRIHP), an agent of the Bank in the Republic of Poland.
On the first day meetings with industrial companies were held in Lodz at the site of the Lodz Regional Development Agency (LARR S.A.), and on February 28, “IBEC Days” moved to the capital of Poland, Warsaw, where a business forum was held.
Representatives of more than 60 companies – partners and potential clients of the Bank, as well as companies interested in business development and settlement operations in the IBEC member states – took part in these events.
Welcoming remarks to the guests and speakers were addressed by the Chairman of the IBEC Board Denis Ivanov: “I would like to emphasize that, as a Bank with the state participation of Poland, we are ready to be a house bank for Polish companies in our member states where Polish banks are not participants in the financial market”.
The Bank’s presentation was continued by Lidia Anchakovska, Member of the IBEC Board from the Republic of Poland, and more detailed information on the product line was provided by Alexandra Matveeva, Director of the Client Relations Department, and her deputy, Zbigniew Ekiert.
After the completion of “IBEC Days”, Bank’s delegation held a number of meetings with Polish banks in Warsaw, during which the parties discussed potential areas and forms of cooperation.
This business forum became a pilot one in a series of similar regular events initiated by IBEC in its member states and dedicated to establishing contacts, IBEC positioning in the business community of the member states and identifying opportunities for cooperation in the area of cross-border trade financing and settlements.
