B2RLaw Partner George Havaris appointed Executive Board Member of the Polish Canadian Chamber of Commerce (PCCC)09/10/2020
Partner George Havaris has been appointed as an Executive Board Member of the Polish Canadian Chamber of Commerce. The PCCC aims to promote economic, cultural and commercial relations between Poland and Canada that lead to real investment and trade.
George Havaris, originally from Toronto, is a Solicitor of the Senior Courts of England and Wales. He is a corporate and banking lawyer with a broad experience of working on cross-border M&A and financing transactions. George heads B2R’s English Law and Canada Desk and is also a recognised lawyer in the emerging Polish cannabis industry.
George advises, “I very much thank the Polish Canadian Chamber of Commerce for my appointment. Poland is Canada’s largest goods trading partner in the CEE region. The Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement provides opportunities to strengthen the bilateral economic relationship. Bilateral trade between Canada and Poland reached $3.08 billion in 2019. Canada exported nearly $744 million to Poland with $2.34 billion in imports. I look forward to working closely with the PCCC, and to further developing trade opportunities between Canada and Poland.”
