    Discussion on future cooperation between the IRE and the Regional Parliament of Wielkopolska Voivodeship

    Delegation from Poland visited the IRE in Salzburg:

    A delegation of the Regional Parliament of the Wielkopolska  Voivodeship (Greater Poland) led by the president of the regional parliament, Zofia Szalczyk, visited the Institute of the Regions of Europe (IRE) on the 28th of May 2018 and met the IRE chairman Franz Schausberger and Secretary General Joachim Fritz for a detailed discussion. President Zofia Szalczyk was accompanied by the Deputy-President of the Regional Parliament Mirosława Rutkowska-Krupka and the President of the Committee of Regional Development Strategy and International Relations, Mikołaj Grzyb, as well as members of three parliamentary groups of the regional parliament. As President Zofia Szalczyk emphasized, the visit was intended to strengthen cooperation between her Voivodeship and the Austrian provinces. Due to the good geographic location of the Wielkopolska Voivodeship and the excellent traffic connection with Moscow, Berlin and Warsaw, the region is ideally suited for foreign investors. This is also reflected in the fact that already 4,000 foreign companies have settled in this region.

    After Wielkopolska was heavily influenced by agriculture, it wants to learn more about the exemplary organic farming in Austria, especially with regard to the agricultural products and marketing. In terms of tourism, the Polish regions are trying to win over the city of Poznan with a length of 350 km for sports enthusiasts from Austria by expanding the river ring.
    The development of cross-border regional cooperation is one of the priorities of the IRE. It was agreed to intensify this in further meetings.
