Poland named as Partner Country for Hannover Messe 2017

April 26, 2016 Poland will be honored as the official Partner Country for HANNOVER MESSE 2017, as announced today in Hannover by the Polish Ministry of Economic Development and HANNOVER MESSE organizer Deutsche Messe. Paweł Chorąży, Undersecretary of State in the Polish Ministry of Economic Development, and Deutsche Messe Managing Board member Dr. Jochen Köckler signed the Partner Country agreement at the Polish national pavilion during HANNOVER MESSE.

“We are delighted that our neighbor Poland will be the Partner Country for HANNOVER MESSE 2017,” said Köckler. “Many sectors of Polish industry are achieving impressive innovation and growth. This presents a range of opportunities for businesses and investors all around the world. HANNOVER MESSE is the ideal platform for highlighting these opportunities and hence for putting the strengths of the Polish economy in the international spotlight and building closer economic relations, both multilaterally and bilaterally between Germany and Poland,” he added.

Polish Undersecretary of State Chorąży emphasized the opportunities expected to arise from his nation’s Partner Country role: “One of the Polish government’s most important priorities is to support innovative Polish companies and help them expand internationally. The international industrial trade fair in Hannover gives Polish companies an excellent chance to showcase their technologically advanced products and engage with valuable contacts. As the official Partner Country for HANNOVER MESSE 2017, we will be portraying the varied and dynamic nature of Poland’s economy as well as its highly innovative spirit, and seeking to further our foreign trade relations with international partners.”

Poland has been enjoying rapid and stable economic growth for many years and is now the sixth-largest economy in the European Union. Poland’s Ministry of Economic Development is currently pursuing a “Plan for Responsible Development” aimed at re-industrialization, fostering innovative businesses, building up development capital, opening up foreign markets and promoting social and regional development. Specific projects envisaged by the plan relate to eco-friendly local public transport infrastructure, IT security, unmanned aerial vehicles, and ships and mining machinery.


The world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology will next be staged from 25 to 29 April 2016 in Hannover, Germany. The upcoming HANNOVER MESSE will feature five parallel shows: Industrial Automation, Energy, Digital Factory, Industrial Supply and Research & Technology. At HANNOVER MESSE 2016, major emphasis will be placed on the following four topics: Industrial Automation & IT • Energy & Environmental Engineering • Innovative Subcontracting Solutions • Research & Development. The United States of America is being honored as the Partner Country of HANNOVER MESSE 2016.
