Slovenia to open consulate in Katowice
Ljubljana, 4 April - The government adopted on Thursday the decision to open a Slovenian consulate in Katowice which will be headed by honorary consul Tomasz Zjawiony, considered a respected entrepreneur with extensive connections in the south of Poland.
The Government Communication Office wrote that the size of Poland made it difficult for the embassy in Warsaw to identify cooperation opportunities in all Polish regions.
The consulate, which will cover the Silesian and Lesser Poland voivodeships, will make it easer to actively follow developments in various fields of economic and social life in the region and seek out business opportunities and activities that can deepen cooperation and further boost Slovenia's image.
It can also contribute significantly to the protection of the interests of Slovenian citizens in the area, since the large distances in Poland have been making this difficult.
Zjawiony was picked by the government upon the proposal of the Foreign Ministry. The Communication Office described him as a dynamic figure and experienced businessman who is eager to help build ties with Slovenia.
