Yachts, the quiet heroes of Polish export. Veronika Joy reports from the Economic and Investment Forum.
No, this time it is not furniture. It is Polish yachts - known worldwide for their modern construction, design, technical quality and overall, craftsmanship.
They are pretty, carefully crafted, luxurious, and sport flat-screen TVs. In boat shows across Europe, about a third of all vessels are now Polish-made.
There are more than 900 sailing-related companies in Poland and experts say, the industry is ready to sail smoothly on to the global markets.
"The niche yachting industry fully developed in a different reality, in a different Poland,"
says Jarosław Zygmunt Dworzański, Marshal of Podlaskie Province. The Marshal's Office organises annual Economic and Investment Forum, which promotes the Polish shipbuilding industry.
