ヴァウブジフ経済特区訪問・視察。日系企業との懇親会。English follows after Japanese.

ドルシノスキエ県内に43ある日系企業のうち11社、約3分の1がこの経済特区に進出している。最初に案内された陶磁器の工場の敷地は250ヘクタールだという。とにかく広い。森の中に工場があるような。。。まさに巨大な「公園」。

どうやらここの日系企業の一番の問題は人材不足。ポーランド人は平均して高い質の労働者であるが、最近人材が逼迫。バドラ経済特区社長は、即戦力の人材を育てるよう教育機関に要請。他の地方自治体と連携し、人を融通してもらう。通勤圏を広げるべく、公共交通機関の整備などの対策を取っている。ただ、これには時間がかかるので、近く閣僚会議を開き、できる範囲内で、素早い対応ができるよう働きかけることにしているそうだ。

最初の話し合いでは硬い、前体制的な応答だったが、やはり半日一緒にいて、議論し、食事して、ジョークを言い合うと暖かな笑みがこぼれるようになった。最後には「また、すぐに会えると良いですね!」と心を込めて握手。

人間関係って、どこでもそういうものだと思う。しきたりやパターンは少しずつ違うから、最初は戸惑う。でも、誠意を込めて話せば、ほとんどの方には通じる。(たまに、そうでない時もあるけど。。。)だから、きちんと会って、目を見つめながら、誠実に、根気よく話すこと。ちゃんと自分の主張も話すこと。綺麗事を言っていたら、話は進まない。でも、誠意があれば、少しきつい要求をしても、相手はきちんと受け止めてくれる。

私は外交のプロでも、企業のマネージャーでもないけれど、そういう円滑剤になれたら良いなあ・・・と、できるだけ、主人の横にくっついて行って、お邪魔することにしています。(きっと時折内心、迷惑がられていると思うけど・・・!)

We visited the Warlbrzyska Special Economic Zone, “INVEST PARK”, to have discussion with the head of the Economic Special Zone and see the Japanese investors to the area.

There are 43 Japanese enterprises operating in the Lower Silesia Vivodeship. And 11 of them are in this Warlbrzyska Special Economic Zone. The factory we had seen in the first place had more than 250hectare premise. Unimaginably large… It is the huge “ Investment Park ” literally with beautiful greens around.

The most serious problem that Japanese enterprises are facing now seemed to be shortage of skilled labor. The standard of the Polish labor is quite high. But these days the labor market is very tight. Mr. Badora, the head of the SEZ answered that they are requesting the educational institutions to raise more graduates who could be the immediate assets for the buisiness, trying to co-ordinate with other municipals to bring more labor to this area, planning to develop the public transportation system to broaden the commutable area.

Some Japanese investor required quicker solutions. Mr. Badora responded they are holding the ministerial conference in the near future to find quicker and temporary measures to solve the problem as soon as possible.

In the beginning Mr. Bodora seemed so tough and reminded me that Poland have been under Soviet affiliated communism regime. But after discussing for the whole afternoon, having the lunch together and exchanging jokes, we could enjoy his sincere and nice smiles. In the end of the day, we promised to see before long and shook hands tight.

I believe that human are human in any countries. Of course the rules, manners, and the styles are different. So we have to look for the right way, sometimes with bewilderment. But from my experience, if we talk sincerely, most of the people are communicable. (I have to admit there are rare exceptions...) I have learned to talk with people sincerely and patiently with eyes to eyes was fruitful in most of the cases. The important thing is both asserting our own request and wish in the right way, not only listening their perspectives. If you could do so, they will have ears for our demand even though it could be tough for them.

Although I am not either professional diplomat or professional business manager, I wish I could serve as some kind of facilitator in many occasions. So I try to be with my husband as much as possible, even though he might not like it sometimes….Sorry!
