Lodz as a logistic hub of Central and Eastern Europe

Countries of Asia and Africa are becoming increasingly attractive as export markets.  What products could Polish companies offer to break into these markets? What barriers hinder expansion to Asia and Africa and how can they be overcome? Can Lodz play a significant role in this undertaking? These topics will be discussed by experts in economy, foreign trade, politics, law and logistics. Practitioners who have succeeded in the markets of Asia and Africa will share their experiences as well.
