– Korean companies choose Poland as a gateway to trade and invest in Europe, and we want to cooperate with these companies. At Bank Pekao, we are able to offer financial products tailored to their needs, intended both for their activities on our market and for their international projects, says Piotr Stolarczyk, director of the International Banking and Trade Finance Department at Bank Pekao.

According to it, cooperation may include activities in corporate finance transactions of Korean companies operating in Poland or Polish companies operating in South Korea, development of transactions in the area of ​​trade financing, including letters of credit and bank guarantees, and acquiring new corporate clients.
