The first Business Advisory Center for Ukrainians Diia.Business has started its operation in Warsaw. From the first days of the centre’s activities, every Ukrainian citizen in Poland will be able to take advantage of free professional consultations on, among other things, employment on the territory of Poland. Diia.Business was launched by the Ukrainian Ministry of Digital Transformation, the Polish Ministry of Development and Technology, the Polish Investment and Trade Agency and the Office of the Government Plenipotentiary for Cybersecurity in cooperation with Mastercard.
Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, we have received a lot of support from Poles in all areas – diplomatic, military, humanitarian, economic and digital. Poland has given shelter to millions of Ukrainians and has become the first EU country to accept digital documents in the Diia app when crossing borders. And today, in Warsaw, we have symbolically opened the first foreign Diia.Business Centre. It will work not only in the standard consultation format for entrepreneurs, but all Ukrainians who are in Poland today and need a job, housing or help in completing formalities will be able to come here- said Mykhailo Fedorov, Deputy Prime Minister – Minister for Digital Transformation of Ukraine, during the opening of the Centre.
Diia.Business is a project promoting entrepreneurship and export, initiated by the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine. The project consists of two components: an online portal and a network of support centres for entrepreneurs.
I am glad that today we are opening a help centre for entrepreneurs from Ukraine, i.e. the Diia.Business branch in Warsaw. This is possible thanks to the cooperation of the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine, the Agency for Enterprise Development and Export of Ukraine and the Polish Investment and Trade Agency. I would like to thank PAIH for joining the project and providing the location and space necessary to carry out the center’s tasks. I believe that Diia.Business will contribute to the creation and implementation of many necessary and interesting projects in Poland – said Olga Semeniuk, Secretary of State, Government Plenipotentiary for Small and Medium Enterprises.
Thanks to the commencement of the centre’s activity, Ukraine citizens will be able to take advantage of free, professional consultations in the area of running a business, accommodation, employment and living in Poland. The Diia.Business Centre in Warsaw will provide, among other things, advice on obtaining refugee status and provide information on who to contact in crisis situations.
