The First Vice-President of the Polish-Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce Oleg Dubish. It is reported by with athe reference to the official blog.

The Ukrainian media reacted briskly to new appointments in the Polish Government, which President Andrzej Duda signed on January 9, 2017, on the proposal of Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. In Ukraine we mainly speak of personnel changes in the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Defense. And I would like to draw attention to one more appointment, which, in my opinion, can have a serious positive impact on the development of mutually beneficial Polish-Ukrainian cooperation. It is about the appointment of Jerzy Kwieciński, the new Minister of Investment and Development of Poland. For those who are interested in the professional career of the new Minister, please refer to the

I would like to point out that, in my opinion, Mr. Jerzy Kjecyński is a great friend of Ukraine and has been actively involved in the development of Polish-Ukrainian economic cooperation for many years. At the same time, he does it regardless of the position he occupies. For the first time, I had the opportunity to get acquainted with Mr. Kjecyński a long time ago, during the Polish-Ukrainian meetings held in Yaremche, organized by the V.Petfanyk Precarpathian National University. Then Mr. Jerzy headed the European Center for Entrepreneurship Foundation and implemented projects in Ukraine. As Secretary-General of the Ministry of Development of the Government of the PIS, Jerzy Kjecyński continued to actively support Ukraine. Among other things on the initiative and with the active participation and support of Mr. Kjecyński Ministry of Development of Poland, within the framework of the Polish Assistance Program for the development of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland, implements a development assistance project for Ukraine entitled “Raising the Investment Attractiveness of Ukraine and Competitiveness of the Regions.”

Jerzy is also actively involved in the development of the “Carpathian Strategy”, the successful implementation of which, among other things, will involve active cooperation of the countries of the Carpathian region and participation in EU structures in support of relevant local governments of Poland and Ukraine, as well as development of economic and other cooperation. Mr. Kjecyński is interested in the development of systemic cooperation in the Intermountain region, in particular to multilateral cooperation between Poland, Ukraine and Turkey.

During the Baltic Business Forum-2017 in St. Vincent, Pan Jerzy Kjecyński was awarded a special award for PUGP “Bulava Business 2017” for the great contribution to the development of Polish-Ukrainian economic cooperation and on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Polish-Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce.

All the best Mr. Jerzy Kevitsinsky on a new responsible post in the Government of Poland!
