    As SAS inaugurates a new flight connection from Copenhagen to Szczecin investment cooperation and tourist exchange between Denmark and West Pomerania is subject to discussions at a seminar organised by Dansk Industri and the Embassy of Poland in Copenhagen. Later that day a grand offer of business and tourist opportunities as well as culinary experiences from Szczecin and the region were presented to the guests present at this year’s celebration of the 3 May Constitution Day.

    In early April SAS launched a direct flight connection between Copenhagen and Szczecin-Goleniów. On this occasion, a delegation representing the regional authorities headed by Marshal Olgierd Geblewicz and Deputy Mayor of the city of Szczecin, Daniel Wacinkiewicz, paid a two-day visit to Copenhagen, attending this year's celebration of the 3 May Constitution Day at the Embassy of Poland in Copenhagen and promoting the touristic, business and academic offer of West Pomerania.


    “I am extremely pleased with your numerous presence at the celebration of the 3 May Constitution Day. I take it as a proof of how close the Polish-Danish relations are today. The constitution day is an important anniversary for Poland and the Poles all over the world, as it marks their attachment to the tradition and heritage of the first constitutional act in Europe and the second in the world, inspired directly by the spirit of Enlightenment and the efforts of the Polish elites of that time to renew and reform the state. The national holiday commemorating the adoption of the Constitution of 3 May 1791 was formally established in 1919, so it has a long tradition. This year, we celebrate its 100th anniversary along with the centenary of the renewal of Polish-Danish diplomatic relations.” – stressed Ambassador H. Mościcka-Dendys, who welcomed the guests. The reception was attended by about 300 invited guests representing the Royal Danish Court, government administration, academia, armed forces, diplomatic corps and defence attachés, the Polish diaspora and media.


    Marshal O. Geblewicz referred to West Pomerania’s highly dynamically developing cooperation with Denmark and Scandinavia in the domain of business and investments – a direction, which got a strategic dimension for the region, as evidenced i.a. by the reestablishment of direct air connection between Copenhagen and Szczecin (Goleniów), operated by SAS.


    The celebration was embellished by the presence of historical reenactors from the Society – Centre for Slavs and Vikings “Wolin-Jomsborg-Wineta”, as well as representatives of the Binowo golf club. A 3D station (a virtual panorama of the West Pomerania region) allowed the guests to dive in into the region. A selection of West Pomeranian wine and craft beer followed by organic food and cosmetics, allowed the guests to dive into the regional tastes.


    The representatives of West Pomerania and the city of Szczecin while visiting Denmark had the chance to participate in a seminar about investments in the energy sector, organized by the Embassy of Poland in Copenhagen in cooperation with the Confederation of Danish Industry (Dansk Industri). The event gathered representatives of prominent Danish investors in Poland, including Vestas, Ørsted (formerly DONG Energy), LM Wind Power, Rambøll and BIC Electric. The delegation also visited State of Green for a briefing about Danish experiences in the field of green transformation, energy efficiency and renewable energy.
