How did micro and small enterprises survived in the market in 2013, especially in terms of export? Experts from PEKAO SA investigated the issue and reported the results in the “Report of the Micro and Small Enterprises in 2013” presented at the Marshal's Office in Olsztyn on March 24.
-As the voivodeship self-government we want to work with entrepreneurs - the economic development of the region largely dependent on entrepreneurship. We would like the development of the region to continue, also on the basis of EU funds, which will be a great opportunity for businesses in the coming years - said Anna Wasilewska, member of the management of warmińsko-mazurskie voivodeship during the presentation of the report. - Small and micro enterprises are an important partner for us. The promotion department includes teams focusing on economic promotion, which indicates how important this subject is for us.
The fourthreport was published this year; the authors also plan further such reports in subsequent years. All of this aims to look at the development of micro and small enterprises and to show what the trends in their business are. During the research on this year's report, almost 7 thousand companies were analysed in September 2013. This large study sample also allowed to show the situation within the various regions, particularly in terms of specific subject - export.
The meetingwas also an opportunity to showcase the daily activities of the Centrum Obsługi Inwestorów i Eksporterów (centre for investors and exporters), acting within the structures of the Marshal's Office in Olsztyn. Just a reminder, an entrepreneur who asks for help at the centre, can count on help in dealing with foreign companies and on materials that can help him in conducting business outside Poland (more on the http://warminsko-mazurskie.coie.gov.pl/pl/).
