The idea behind the 60 Million Congress - Global Polonia Summit is to integrate - on a broad scale - the Polish and Polish expat business communities at large. The name of the congress corresponds with the overall number of Poles that there are in the world - in Poland and abroad. The celebration of Poland's 100th anniversary after regaining independence constitutes a unique opportunity to meet for Polish expats and to discuss the current position of Poland on the world map, especially in the context of today's globalization process within the political and socio-economic sphere.
