05 Nov Report from the 12th Gathering of the Polish Business Club
Dear Members and Friends of the Polish Business Club in Jakarta
First of all I would like to thank all of you who were able to come to our XII gathering at the Eastern Promise last week.
We managed to facilitate 52 guests, of which 24 were our club members, 9 regular visitors and 19 came for the first time.
They all represented over 30 different industries with some of them mentioned below:
I hope all of the guests were satisfied with services of our host Eastern Promise, so I would like to thank Lens, Meggy and all waitresses for taking care of us.
I would like to thank the representatives of Qatar Airways and specially Mr. Rulan Hersono, the Sales Executive, for giving us a presentation about the airline and introducing details how the Club members could use their official website to access the discounted rates reserved to our Club.
Our agreement with Qatar Airways is valid until the end of September 2014, so please take full advantage of their services.
Taking about services, last Saturday the Polish Business Club together with students from the IB English B class and Mr. Wojciech Kur, our Club’s supporter from Adidas Indonesia, have organized together under a Service Learning Program “Hand by Hand Indonesia” (http://handsbyhand.wodrpress.com) an 8-a –side soccer tournament for the boys from the local school we are taking care of.
Location of the Tournament – Jakarta International School.
Mr. Kur has organized 16 pairs of Adidas soccer shoes for the winning and follow-up teams*, the students brought refreshments and handled the organizing duties and the Polish Business Club used money from selling the soccer book and soccer game programs to buy medals for all of the participants plus delicious Magnum-Mini ice cream.
We had a fantastic time watching those boys enjoying playing soccer but specially one, Reza, who scored 10 goals and had 2 assists during three 12-minute games. Outstanding performance. He is 12 years old and is a member of the ASA – Asian Soccer Academy.
You can see some more pictures from that tournament here:
*because of technical reasons, the shoes will be delivered to the winners later.
Taking the opportunity of writing to you directly I would like to inform you also about a meeting that took place on the 27th of October 29, 2013 organized by Trade and Investment Promotion Division of the Polish Embassy in Jakarta to which the Polish Business Club, Kopex Contractors and BUMAR Sp.z.o.o representatives.
During the meeting the participants exchanged information about present economic situation in Indonesia in the field of trade and investment opportunities between Poland and Indonesia.
The Head of the Trade and Investment Promotion Division Mr. R. Morawski introduced to us the effects of the September official visit of the President of Indonesia Mr. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in Poland and a number of MoU-s signed to open a base for further intensification of bilateral economic relationships between our countries.
This meeting gave us also an occasion to review a perfect partnership between Polish Trade Mission and representatives of Polish companies in Indonesia and Polish Business Club.
This is all for this time and I hope to see all of you during our next gathering. The date will be confirmed later but most probably it will be on the 14th of December.
