Orange becomes a partner of the Polish Presidency in the EU - Orange Polska

Orange, TP Group’s leading brand, became a partner of the Polish Presidency in the European Union. Orange will provide Polish diplomats with technology support in the form of Orange mobile services and access to special hot spots on designated Polish airports.

“I am proud that we will be able to support Poland’s first Presidency of the European Union. It is a great honor for Orange and the entire TP Group, and at the same time second confirmation in a very short time of the quality of our services, and reliability as a partner in endeavors important for Poland. I am glad that we will be a partner of two exceptional events: EURO 2012 and the first Polish Presidency in the EU,” said Maciej Witucki, President, TP Group.

Under the partnership agreement, Orange will equip Polish diplomats and officials supporting the Presidency with ICT equipment – mobile phones, wireless modems, and laptops with complete software. TP Group’s personnel will also ensure hardware support – logistics, installation, and technical support for end users. Additionally, there will be special hot spots on airports identified by the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This way, the diplomats and people participating in international meetings related to the Polish Presidency in the EU will have Internet access while on the go.

In the name of TP Group, the agreement with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was signed by Contact Center.

EU Member States perform Presidency (i.e. lead the works of the EU Council) for six months. During that time, each country becomes the host of most EU events, and performs a key role in all EU activity areas. It is also responsible for organizing EU meetings, creates the political direction of the Union, and manages its development, integration and security. On July 1, 2011, for the first time in history, Poland will starts its Presidency in the European Union Council.
