After the information presentation, there was a Q&A session. Most of the questions were related to the possibility of cooperation with local business and the benefits of investment to the region’s economy. The following questions were answered by: Ewa Łabno-Falęcka, Head of Communication & External Affairs and Andreas Schenkel, CEO.
– This is the second informative meeting organized for local entrepreneurs. I am glad that this time the turnout was good and the participants had many interesting questions. As promised at the beginning, we share with our neighbours and partners the most important facts about the investment, but also such events are a great opportunity to get to know the expectations, hopes and fears associated with the project. Open communication is as important to us as the implementation of plans in accordance with the assumed schedule – said Ewa Łabno-Falęcka.
