Legislation Monitoring Centre
In Poland there is neither an internet portal nor an institution for employers responsible for monitoring the legislation process of regulations that determine the rules for business activity. At present employers  learn about changes in the law mainly from mass media or simply through the grapevine, usually with delay.

Conference "From transformation to globalization"


Celebrations of the 25th jubilee will be accompanied by a two-day (November 27-28th) international conference entitled “From transformation to globalization”, to be held at the National Stadium in Warsaw. The objective of the conference is to show the path of Polish entrepreneurs and Polish economy in the last quarter of a century. Employers of Poland and their guests will also discuss how to stimulate economic growth in Europe and the role of leaders in the transformation of both entrepreneurships and the economy as a whole.
