"Over the past two years, reality has exceeded our wildest expectations, as evidenced by record growth in business services exports. The sector has adapted to the circumstances exceptionally quickly and nimbly" - ABSL President Janusz Dziurzynski assessed.
"We have crossed another important boundary. The share of highly specialised services amounted for the first time in the history of ABSL in Poland to over 50 per cent of all provided services. It clearly proves that our market has changed a lot and reached its maturity. Statistically, there were 130 new jobs created in the sector every day, and on average 75 of them were highly specialized ones, which shows how important the so-called competences of the future are," - said ABSL Vice-President Dariusz Kubacki.
