On 1st April ABSL officially took the lead in the Enterprise Council for the following quarter. During our first meeting in April we discussed our priorities pending ABSL presidency and key areas that require system changes.

We will actively participate in the work on solutions developed by Polish government, with special focus on measures strengthening business resilience, supporting sectors mostly affected by the pandemic and increasing Poland’s attractiveness as an investment location. Invariably, we will carry all our activities in the following quarter responding to the needs of the business services sector in Poland.
