MASSPORT AND MIT JOIN IN SEMINAR TO PROMOTE HOUSING EXPORTS TO POLAND

MASSPORT AND MIT JOIN IN SEMINAR TO PROMOTE HOUSING EXPORTS TO POLAND
 BOSTON, May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Sweeping economic changes in Poland and central Europe have opened up export opportunities for New England's housing and construction industry. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) are sponsoring a May 22nd conference to discuss how local firms can take advantage of the new market for exports.
 As the housing market shifts from large group dwellings to individual ownership of detached homes, local firms with experience in the design, manufacture, and construction of housing could find customers for their products in Poland and central Europe. Various U.S. and international government financial programs can assist companies in penetrating the housing export market. The conference will focus on the strategies and potential funding for firms considering Poland.
 The SIGUS Group, from MIT's School of Architecture and Planning, has been involved in Poland since 1991, and is co-sponsor of the conference. Massport's Trade Development Unit works with New England companies to develop export markets overseas and recently hosted a conference on Eastern Europe with Digital Equipment Corporation. Trade Unit Director Andrew Bendheim said: "We have successfully exported manufactured and log homes to Asia and local firms have an excellent reputation for building quality products. Poland is open to the technology and the skills we have, and could be a good export market."
 The May 22nd conference will be at the MIT Faculty Club, beginning at 10 a.m. Registration is $50, through the Massport Trade Development Unit.
