Go Poland

Blog language

I have read the bargain prices of LOT direct flights from Warsaw to Beijing, they are still higher than Aeroflot offers with stopover in Moscow. Maybe Russians are more interested to promote exodus of  the Polish business to China than our government or they hope that the Polish businessmen, during their stopover in Moscow on their way to China, will change their mind and invest their money in Russia.

But let’s be serious, I have read about very quick reaction of the Chinese law firms, which willing to take profit of this very convenient air connection, have just started to open their offices in Warsaw. The first one is the second largest Chinese law firm Yingke Varnai opening in Poland last month, the new firm under the name Yingke Varnai BHWS. They employ 20 lawyers and tax advisers. This is a huge investment.

What are the objectives of their activity? They are going to be active in  such branches as: energy, IT, environmental protection, agriculture and food production, all sectors in which  investing outside of China, Chinese companies get a support of the Chinese government  through a program stimulating the international expansion of selected Chinese companies. This way we come to the core of the issue. Our government is talking a lot about Go China project, the Chinese government is carrying the real strongly financed activities. This is why the title misses question mark.
