Leader of the Panel
Chairman of the Port of Gdynia Business Board,
President of the Board of the Baltic Container Terminal (BCT) in Gdynia,
He is active when it comes to improving the port business environment, e.g. streamlining customs clearance or improving fiscal conditions for entrepreneurs providing services for Polish foreign trade, making national and international laws applicable to port activity, development of innovative IT and communication technologies which support logistics and other.
The Seaports panel will be devoted to the analysis of challenges faced by Polish ports and their planned big-scale development in years to come. The panel will inform about investments that are conducted and planned in four biggest Polish ports (Gdynia, Gdańsk, Szczecin and Świnoujście, Elbląg), and the discussion will try to provide answers to the basic questions concerning these projects:
– Will they appropriately follow the further development of regional trade exchange?
– Does abundance of shipments justify such big investments?
– How will the port in Elbląg enhance the transshipment capabilities of Polish ports?
– How are development projects going to be financed?
The panel should determine the role of ports in the Polish economy. Discussions to be conducted will focus on the regional role and relations between the largest ports in Poland. Panellists will look into the condition of individual ports and their strategies at the time of stagnation in international trade, in particular resulting from the economic slowdown in China. They will also look closer at the possibilities that opened before Polish ports in connection with the idea of creating new Silk Road connecting Europe and China.
