The Port of Gdansk opens a new business office in China

Cooperation between China and the Port of Gdansk is growing more and more each year. After the marketing success during this year’s CILF 2018 industry fair in China, the time has come to open the Port’s business office in Asia. It will be the first one representing the Polish port in the „Middle Kingdom”.

The Port of Gdansk has decided to open its first office in Shanghai – not only the largest city in China, but also the global leader among seaports. The Port of Gdansk’s business office was established in cooperation with the Polish Investment and Trade Agency (PAIH).

„It is a giant step in the process of building a strong position for the Port of Gdansk on the global map. Our permanent presence in the very centre of the Chinese maritime economy is both a business and image success. None of the Baltic ports have been as active or thriving as much in the Asian market as the Port of Gdansk. We are the first ones to open a business office in China. This is a result of consistently building and raising awareness of our brand among our Chinese partners, and at the same time a foundation for future actions,” says Patryk Felmet, head of the Marketing Department at the Port of Gdansk Authority.

The office opened on 3 November. The opening ceremony was also attended by Grzegorz Witkowski, Deputy Minister at the Ministry of Maritime Economy and Inland Navigation. Its task is to strengthen existing partnerships with Chinese companies, win new clients, and coordinate mutual cooperation, also in the sphere of investments. And there are plenty of those at the Port of Gdansk, the largest one being the Central Port – the project is already arousing huge interest among the Chinese.
