Google is set to increase its presence in Warsaw - this has been announced at the newly-opened Polish House at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
The information was confirmed by Karan Bhatia, head of Google's Global Public Policy and Government Relations
“First of all our excitement about growth in the region and, of course, just the broader growth but also specifically the growth of digital, at twice the pace of Western Europe,” Bhatia said.
He added: “Secondly - talent. There are 240 000 STEM graduates every year, out of the CEE region, which is twice the number coming out of Northern Europe as an example.”
The Polish House at the World Economic Forum in Davos was inaugurated on January 21 and is co-organized by PZU, Poland’s biggest and oldest insurance company, and Bank Pekao, the country's second-largest bank.
According to the organisers, the House seeks to promote Poland’s economy as well as the Three Seas Initiative, besides highlighting entrepreneurship and innovation of Polish companies.
Also signed at the Polish House was an agreement establishing the Business Council of Three Seas countries, initially grouping representatives of twelve of the biggest companies from the area. The Three Seas Initiative, founded in 2016, is a forum of twelve states in the European Union, located in central and eastern Europe, and connecting the Adriatic, Baltic, and the Black Sea.
