Between 3 – 8 May, selected participants in the GreenEvo project – Green Technology Accelerator will take part in the economic mission to China under an economic program associated with the EPTEE fair and Polish participation in EXPO 2010 Exhibition in Shanghai. The mission is to promote Polish technologies in the field of environmental protection and make it easier for Polish companies to establish contacts with potential buyers of Polish solutions. Ministry of the Environment promotes the trip of the companies participating in the GreenEvo project. The mission is organised by the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development with the cooperation of  Trade and Investment Promotion Section of Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Shanghai. Both PAED and foreign offices of ME and MFA are partners of Ministry of the Environment in implementing  the GreenEvo programme and they create a platform for optimal project implementation.
During the mission, each Polish company is going to meet with at least three Chinese entrepreneurs, present its company and technology submitted for the GreenEvo project to them, and provide information on the green technology market in Poland. Recruitment of companies for the matchmaking meetings was carried out by the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade. There will also be meetings with the representatives of Chinese chambers of commerce and ecological industry associations dealing with production and international trade. The representatives of the Polish companies are going to participate in one of the most important fairs in China in the field of environmental protection – combined IFAT China fair (International Fair for Waste, Sewage, Refuse, Recycling and Natural Energy), EPTEE (China Environmental Protection Expo) and CWS (Show for Water, Air, Waste, Energy and Recycling). They will be held in Shanghai on 5-7 May at the exhibition grounds of Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC). The Polish booth is planning a seminar during the fair, presenting the GreenEvo project and its unique development offer for Polish green technologies. The seminar will be opened by Mr Bernard Błaszczyk, Undersecretary of State of Ministry of the Environment, the President of the GreenEvo Competition Chapter.
According to the Trade and Investment Promotion Section of Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Shanghai,  companies that offer solutions for wastewater treatment, air protection and municipal waste disposal will attract the greatest interest at the fair. These areas are of particular importance in connection with the development of Chinese economy. Such technologies and others will be presented to Chinese partners by the Polish companies. 6 companies participating in the GreenEvo project is taking part in the economy mission to Shanghai: Biogradex-Holding Sp. z o. o. from Elbląg, Ecotech Polska Sp. z o.o. from Łomianki, Marbet-Will Sp. z o. o. from Bielsko-Biała, Rzemieślnicza Wytwórnia Chemiczna „Alchemik” Andrzej Piotrowski Piotr Piotrowski S.C. from  Inowrocław, Sunex Sp. z o. o. from Racibórz and Watt Sp. z o. o. from Piekary Śląskie.

All the companies have previous experience in co-operating with foreign partners, including Chinese partners.
– We can expect the first effects of the project after this visit. Its objective is to combine partners who are geographically distant but close in terms of technology and business  – says Agnieszka Korbicz-Kozłowska, the coordinator of the GreenEvo project in Ministry of the Environment.
EXPO 2010 Exhibition in Shanghai will be open from 1 May to 31 October 2010 and
is to be the largest one in the history of world exhibitions. 70 million people will visit the exhibition, including about 5 million foreign visitors.
Poland is the largest economic partner of China in Central Europe. Poland’s entry into the EU had a big impact on the growth of interest in the country, which resulted in perceiving Polish products as being of high, European quality, but cheaper than their counterparts from western Europe.
The primary objective of the GreenEvo project – Green Technology Accelerator is to support the international activity of companies participating in the project and the export of Polish pro-environmental technologies. It helps to identify favourable directions of foreign expansion for technologies qualified for the project. Companies involved in the project benefit from foreign trade missions and organizational support  when participating in international fairs. They can also apply for funding to cover costs of these activities within the framework of available export supporting instruments offered by the Ministry of Economy and the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development.
The National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management is a financing partner of the GreenEvo project.
