– In Davos we talk about the most crucial issues concerning energy, big data or cooperation with international financial institutions. Our current and future partners – the largest players in business world – know KGHM and see through our successes the great economic development of Poland. This success would not have been possible without the support of our government, which actively supports Polish companies also during the forum in Davos - said Marcin Chludziński, President of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A.
The Management Board of KGHM participated, among others, in meetings concerning plans for energy transformation in Europe or the involvement of countries in providing support for Ukraine.
