14 Oct Chairman’s Report: October 2012
Dear Members and Friends of the Polish Business Club in Jakarta,
As the first year of our activities passed almost two months ago, I would like to focus in today’s report on some data closely related to our members and the fields of business they are connected with.
As of today we have 68 active and less active members in our Club (“active” means taking part in our gatherings) representing 11 different nationalities.
Being a member of our Club, you have a right to place the logo of your company with a web link to your website on our official website, at absolutely no charge.
A few of you have done it already, but some not yet – please consider this option.
In our Invitation letter to join the Polish Business Club in Jakarta you can read:
“ ……………we would like to gather entrepreneurs, professionals and people with business connections with Poland (or who would like to know more about business in Poland) for the purpose of networking, learning, business development and promoting business and investment not only between Indonesia and Poland but also other countries interested in self promotion.”
