Partner Country 2017: Poland at its innovative and dynamic best WORLD OF INDUSTRIES At the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology, Poland will be stepping on the stage in front of an international audience to make its case as an attractive partner in a large and diverse range of industries. Innovation and growth are two key areas in which Poland is set to shine as the official Partner Country at Hannover Messe 2017. Apart from domestic re-industrialization, the country’s main economic focus is on opening up foreign markets and supporting innovative Polish companies. Poland has been enjoying rapid and stable economic growth for many years and is one of the five most dynamic economies in the European Union. According to Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI), Poland’s combination of strong gross fixed capital formation and EU funding are a boon to the mechanical and plant engineering industry, with Poland’s machinery imports increasing by 12 % in 2015 alone. Sales of metalworking machinery also grew by a double-digit figure over the same period. Demand for new technology is booming in Poland’s energy sector. In 2015, the sector’s import-to-GDP ratio increased by 16 % on the back of sustained investment in electric generation and distribution infrastructure. “Being next-door neighbors, Poland and Germany are already strong partners. At Hannover Messe 2017, Poland’s industrial sector will demonstrate its innovative spirit and its dynamic uptake of digitalization – factors that make it a key player on the global stage,” remarked JochenKöckler, a member of the Managing Board of Deutsche Messe, the trade show’s organizer. A Polish Economic Development Ministry official explains his country’s objectives heading into Hannover Messe 2017: “As the Partner Country at this year’s show, Poland wants to demonstrate that it is not just interested in rapid economic development for its own sake. Our country’s development must be sustainable and it must be driven by an innovative industrial base. Among the core components of this base I would name industrial automation and industrial IT, energy, alternative powertrain solutions, and compressed and vacuum-air technologies. Another objective of our Partner Country showcase is to send a clear signal to the EU that re-industrialization is the way forward for us all.” 14 WORLD OF INDUSTRIES

NEWS AND MARKETS Poland’s Morawiecki Plan Poland’s government has in fact clearly set out its economic policy direction in what has come to be known as the ‘Morawiecki Plan’. Apart from re-industrialization, the plan gives priority to support for innovative companies, to digitalization, and to greater development of foreign markets. Under the plan, Poland also wants to remain an attractive destination for foreign direct investment, while at the same time encouraging private domestic investment. Digitalization of Poland’s manufacturing processes is certainly proceeding rapidly, with digital manufacturing technology accounting for 4.1 % of the nation’s GDP in 2015. Moreover, the Polish government is actively supporting the process of economic digitization with an extensive program of financing options for the R&D sector. Another core focus of Poland’s overall economic strategy is energy. The renewable portion of the country’s total energy mix currently sits at just 7 % but is prioritized for expansion. Around 150 Polish companies will exhibit on about 43,000 sq. ft. of display space spread across all of Hannover Messe’s 7 constituent trade shows. The Partner Country showcase will comprise themespecific group pavilions in many of Hannover Messe exhibition halls. For instance, NCBR, the National Center for Research and Development, will be running a pavilion at the Research & Technology show in Hall 2. Meanwhile, the Polish government’s central pavilion will be in Hall 3. This is the heart of the showcase and will feature group presentations by ten of the country’s provinces. There will also be Polish group pavilions dedicated to industrial subcontracting (Hall 4), the foundry industry (Hall 5/6), electrical engineering (Hall 13), heating and cooling supply technology (Hall 27) and electric transportation (open-air site).
