Within these 13 firms, the Ostim Defence and Aerospace Clustering (OSSA) and 8 small and medium-scale enterprises attached to the OSSA will participate. I believe that aside from firms that presently are in contact with Poland, firms that will develop our relations with this country for the first time must fully appraise the potential in line with our strategy.
