Over the last several years the countries of Central and Eastern Europe have gained the leading position in the world of shared service centres. The reasons are plenty: motivated and well-educated staff, comprehensive investment support system, geographical and cultural proximity compared to previously leading Asia. 

In the market of services for the business sector Poland is currently ranked no. 1 in Europe and no. 3 in the world. Why is it worth opening a shared service centre in Poland? What are the aid opportunities and how dynamically does the sector develop? Renata Kabas-Komorniczak, Rödl & Partner's expert, will present Poland's potential as a location for a shared service centre (SSC). 

Renowned advisers from Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Russia and Belarus will describe the aid systems in their countries, while representatives of German companies will share their experiences in setting up SSCs in the Central and Eastern European markets. 

The meeting in the form of an expert dialogue is addressed to businesses which are considering opening a shared service centre in the Central and Eastern Europe. It will be an excellent opportunity to learn about the opportunities offered in the above countries and the experiences of companies operating in those markets.
