  • 19 November 2012

    On November 19, 2012, Ambassador Ryszard Schnepf met with members of the U.S.-Poland Business Council. The meeting provided a forum for a discussion about the ongoing and future cooperation between the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Washington DC and the USPBC. Representatives from member companies also had an opportunity to present their business activities and investment plans in Poland.

    During his remarks, Ambassador Ryszard Schnepf talked about the four most promising areas in the development of Polish-U.S. economic cooperation: defense, energy, transportation and health care.  He noted that the “current level of bilateral trade between Poland and the United States is disproportionately low in relation to the economic potential of our countries, ” and encouraged each of the companies to increase their business activities in Poland.   

    Ambassador Schnepf also stressed the importance of finally including Poland in the Visa Waiver Program, which would contribute to strengthening Polish-US economic relations as well as guarantee the growth of the tourism industry.


    Eric Stewart, President of the USPBC, said out that he counts on deepening Polish-U.S. cooperation in the coming years.  He also highlighted a new vehicle for cooperation: some of the USPBC member companies are involved in an internship program offering valuable internship experience to young Poles.


    The US-Poland Business Council groups 25 companies representing a vast spectrum of the US economy such as: energy, defense and pharmaceutical industries. More information on the USPBC is available at
