    The Marshall of the Silesian Voivodship met with the US Ambassador. “We are open to cooperation.”

    The Marshal’s Office hosted a unique meeting today between Marshal Jakub Chełstowski and US Ambassador Mark Brzezinski. Topics such as the transformation of Silesia, American investments and the economic crisis were discussed.

    “I met with US ambassador to Poland Mark Brzezinski. We discussed the war in Ukraine in the context of global security and the presence of US companies in Silesia. We are open to new investments and strengthening economic cooperation,” Jakub Chełstowski, the Marshal of Silesian Voivodeship, wrote on Twitter.



    The Silesian-American talks were held today at the Marshal’s Office. The US Ambassador to Poland, Mark Brzezinski, visited Katowice to discuss, among other things, the issue of global security in the context of the war in Ukraine.


    As the Marshal of the voivodeship, Jakub Chełstowski said during the meeting: “It is a great honour to host the Ambassador of the United States, Mark Brzezinski, but the moment is also special. Today’s leading topics are issues related to the war in Ukraine, resulting from Russia’s aggression, while the situation beyond our eastern border makes us often ask about our security. Our security is guaranteed by our membership in NATO and the deployment of allied troops, including the US army in Poland.”


    The consequence of the events in Ukraine is also an economic crisis, including raw materials, which was also the subject of the meeting. The Marshal and Ambassador also discussed the presence of American companies in Silesia, the future transformation of the region and the opportunities associated with it. 


    “Talks with US Ambassador to Poland Mark Brzezinski were continued at the Silesian Museum. The Ambassador saw an exhibition on the history of Upper Silesia. Silesia has a partnership with the state of Nevada. This gives us a good perspective for strengthening our cooperation,” the Marshal added.
