Dear Sir or Madam,

As part of the EU Programme “International Urban Cooperation: Sustainable and Innovative Cities and Regions – Regional Action Latin America and the Caribbean” (IUC-LAC), which is funded by the EU’s Partnership Instrument, the Regional Development Agency in Bielsko-Biała (ARRSA) established cooperation with the region CIOSTE in Latin America in the field ICT. The aim is to develop joint initiatives that may lead to new business opportunities thus promoting entrepreneurship as well as the exchange of ideas and experience.

Bielsko-Biała is the capital of southern subregion of Ślaskie Voivodeship. The subregion covers an area of 2 352 km2 and the population is about 665 269 inhabitants. The subregion produces 1,8 % of Polish GDP.

The ICT sector is considered as a local and regional smart specialization (RIS3 and city development strategy). Bielsko-Biała is one of the most economically developing cities in Poland with a business-favorable climate – there is around 24K business entities, and within that, there were 632 IT companies registered until February 2017.

Therefore, we ask you to complete the following questionnaire, which will help us to determine the state of the ICT sector in the Southern Subregion of Silesian Voivodeship, indicate the main directions of the industry development and allow us to specify the scope of cooperation between companies from Poland and Brazil, thus opening new marketes both in Europe and Latin America.

Thank you very much for your involvement!
