Letter from Mr. Przemyslaw Czarnek, Voievodship (Province) of Lublin. 

English translation can be found below.

English Translation:

Thank you for the opportunity to participate in an effective and extremely interesting meeting during my visit to Ontario. I am convinced that the established contacts will result in closer ties between Polish and Canadian businesses in the New Year. I am very impressed by the economic activity of Canadian businesses and effectiveness of their politicians.

Together with my Team for Contact and Development of Cooperation and the Province of Lublin, we immediately started working on the organization of the Polish-Canadian Economic Congress, which will be held at the Lublin Voivodship Office in Lublin.

On the occasion of the approaching Christmas, please accept my best wishes. May the God’s Son give us His favors, strengthen faith, hope and love, and his blessings will fill hearts with joy and peace, so may all under the protection of the Blessed Mother, enter with confidence in the New Year.

Mr. Przemyslaw Czarnek
Voievodship (Province) of Lublin
