Saskatchewan Mission to Poland

Last evening, on September 28th, we had the privilege of hosting a remarkable reception at the Embassy of Canada in Warsaw. The event was a special occasion as it provided a platform to meet and greet Jeremy Harrison, Saskatchewan’s Minister of Trade and Export Development and Immigration and Career Training.
This gathering was a unique opportunity to bridge connections between an array of companies hailing from both Saskatchewan and Poland. Ambassador of Canada to Poland, Catherine Godin, along with PCCC President Bernhard Otterstein, commenced the evening, setting the stage for what promises to be a prosperous exchange of ideas and collaborations.

As we raise our glasses to the future, we look forward to the promising partnerships that will blossom from this memorable evening.
