A network of Investors and Exporters' Service Centres (COIiE) is a systemic project initiated by the Ministry of Economy. The project aims at increasing the level of internationalisation of Polish companies by facilitating access of entrepreneurs and their associations to free, high-quality and complex information service that is essential to planning, organizing and carrying out export and/or investments outside Poland.

COliE aims at increasing the level of foreign investments in Poland by providing potential foreign investors with access to information on conditions of starting the business activity (investing) in Poland.

In every province there is one information point called the Investors and Exporters' Service Centre (COliE), which operates based on uniform standards of the provision of information service.

 In Małopolska COIiE has been active since 2010.

  • PRO-EXPERT SERVICE For entrepreneurs from Małopolska planning expansion to foreign markets

As part of the Business in Małopolska - Partnership Network project, implemented in 2013-2015 by Małopolska Provice and the Małopolska Regional Development Agency, a network of Małopolska economic representative offices was established:

  • in the Russian Kaliningrad Region, in cooperation with the Victoria Science and Technology Foundation for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises in Kaliningrad,
