Saxony is a cradle for German technological developments. For the last 200 years world-renowned machines have been produced there. This includes different industries: textile, tool production, or printing solutions. The largest machine-producing enterprises (almost 1000 companies) also originated in this area. For more than 10 years, the Polish-Saxon Economic Forum has been supporting the growth of international cooperation. The 2019 edition is of special meaning since this year we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the partnership between Saxony and the Lower Silesia Voivodship in Poland.

“Making a business go international is a basis for its further growth, which has a huge influence on the economic condition of the regions,” said Marcin Gwóźdź, Deputy Marshal of the Lower Silesia Voivodship.

As a part of this unique edition of the Forum, many representatives of Polish companies, universities and other organisations whose share in the German market is of crucial meaning were invited. One of the speakers was Remigiusz Efinowicz, managing partner at Hicron. He gave a speech on the Polish-German technological partnership in the scope of cooperation that ensures added value in the era of digital transformation of business.

Lower Silesia is a technological hub for Central Europe. We have four special economic zones, a strong concentration of Research and Development, as well as IT and technological departments. Furthermore, it has a great location for transport availability, with a good road and air infrastructure, handling almost 50 flights per day. Hicron is located in the very heart of Lower Silesia, Wrocław.

“As a company, from the very beginning, we have been focusing on delivering solutions for automotive and machine construction industries,” explained Remigiusz Efinowicz, managing partner at Hicron, during his speech at the Forum.
