Warsaw, 20 July 2022


New ZPP program in support of the reconstruction of Ukraine


The Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers (ZPP) is launching the program “Europe – Poland – Ukraine. Rebuild together”, which aims to build and strengthen relations between European, Polish and Ukrainian business communities and to prepare a framework for cooperation in the future reconstruction of Ukraine’s state and economy. We invited leading business organizations in Ukraine to cooperate with the project: European Business Association (EBA), Union of Ukrainian Entrepreneur (SUP) and the Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce.

The program will consist of a number of simultaneous projects. A series of sectoral consultation meetings was launched last week to identify and link together representatives of the sectors crucial for the reconstruction of the Ukrainian economy. Three events will take place in Warsaw in June, and in July we organize a consultation round in Ukraine – in Lviv and Kiev.

In parallel, actions will be directed both at supporting Ukrainian firms in relocation to Poland and strengthening cooperation between Polish and Ukrainian businesses, as well as at assisting workers – immigrants from Ukraine – to find their place on our labor market and increase their competences.

The first phase of the program will be summarized at an international conference, which will take place in Warsaw early October. The event will be attended by representatives of the governments, ministries and parliaments of Poland and Ukraine, as well as experts and representatives of companies from industries directly interested in cooperation. The prospects for economic development in Ukraine and its impact on the global economy will be discussed. We will also discuss the needs and expectations of the Ukrainian side in particular sectors, as well as concrete opportunities for Polish business to participate in the reconstruction of Ukraine.

Marcin Nowacki, Vice President of ZPP comments: The reconstruction of Ukraine is one of the key challenges, but also the opportunities that we must face as the European Union and directly Poland. It is very important to build partnership, knowledge and understanding of the Ukrainian market and the needs of Ukrainian companies today. We hope that this work, which we are now undertaking in Poland, and which our Ukrainian partners also undertake, will build cooperation and a group of companies that will actively participate in the reconstruction of Ukraine. In July, we will be present personally in Lviv and Kiev, because we want to give a clear signal that our Ukrainian partners can count on our assistance not only in the most difficult times, but also in the further structural reconstruction of their economy.

Last week, Nazar Bobitski, a specialist with many years of diplomatic experience in Kiev and Brussels, was appointed as adviser to the management of the ZPP and as the representative of the Union in Ukraine. He leads the work of the ZPP office in Kiev, which will coordinate and support Polish and Ukrainian business contacts.

About the details of the “Europe – Poland – Ukraine. Rebuild together” program and other pro-Ukrainian and pro-business activities we will keep you informed on an ongoing basis. Please contact us at:

Commentary of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers: Transport infrastructure to be expanded

Forecasts regarding the grain harvest in Poland indicate quite clearly that over thirty-four million tonnes of grain will reach the domestic market this year. This means the need to export a surplus of ten million tonnes and ca. 4-5 million tonnes (twice as much as on average in recent years) which remained in the country after last year’s season. For years, Polish grain exports have been coping harmoniously with the proper management of foods, delivering them to recipients on foreign markets – member states and non-EU markets alike…

Memorandum of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers: pro-demographic policy should not be abandoned, but without economic immigration, Poland will not maintain the pace of development

Poland is currently facing one of the greatest challenges in terms of society, the labour market, social security, and the economy as a whole. This problem concerns the country’s constantly and significantly worsening demographic prospects. The fertility rate among Polish women in 2022, according to the latest Statistics Poland report “Poland in numbers 2023”, amounted to 1,261. To achieve simple generation replacement, this ratio would have to come up to 2.1…

Opinion of the President of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers: I defend micro-enterprises because nobody else does!

Micro-enterprises will neither unionise (they are struggling for survival) nor will they raise funds for lobbying and representation (they have no money and do not trust anyone). In other words, there is no money or prestige in microbusiness. As it happens, I don’t care about either, so I can deal with this issue simply for the good of humanity…
