About 65 percent of Polish companies specializing in construction business are willing to boost their international trade size and connections and are seeking to promote their wide array of products and design solutions, recent studies and statistic showed.

The specialized companies, whose products are of high worldwide standards in the quality of materials used in fabrication, are moving toward boosting their business connections and trade levels with Saudi Arabia, the top Arabian country in terms of trade size with Poland.

Poland has confirmed its participation in the Saudi Build 2013 – the 25th International Construction Technology and Building Materials Exhibition – to be held on Nov. 4-7 at the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Center (RICEC), to showcase its companies latest industry-specific advanced services and solutions in a special stand In the exhibition which gathers more than 17 specialized companies in their efforts to build partnership with Arab firms.

Despite the recent world economic recession, Poland maintained its economic growth levels and stability, which made it the only European country that didn’t show a drop in its GDP.

These positive results are due to the increase in its exports levels that reached 143.4 billion euros last year, marking a 4.9 percent growth compared to 2011 results. Polish companies are striving to boost their presence in new and growing markets and achieve similar success and leadership as in their local market.

Construction and industrial products and services form the majority of Poland exports due to the high demand from various end-users and importers from around the world who are aware of the high quality of their products.

Poland construction-related companies are well known for manufacturing windows, polyurethane insulating foam, wood floors, heating equipment, surfaces covering and insulation material as well as for being the world fourth ceramic manufacturer.

Investors in Poland consider export as a valuable opportunity to boost their business partnerships and expand their business activities. At least 65.2 percent have shown great interest in looking for business opportunities in growing markets, such as Saudi Arabia, the studies by both countries showed.

The Construction Industry Promotion Program is currently being carried out by the Poland Chamber of Commerce, a partner of the Council of Saudi Chambers, and Poland Ministry of Economy, to contribute to the development of cooperation between the two countries in this field.

As part of this program, Poland companies will present their latest products during the upcoming Saudi Build at Hall 1, Stand 216-226, 110, 114, as well as their participation at the Saudi-Poland Business Forum on Nov. 6 at the Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
