“We would like to cooperate with Chinese companies and the Chinese economy for the development of the Polish state, the EU and everything that connects Poland and Europe with China,” Duda said in his keynote speech at the Poland-China Trade and Investment Forum.
“We would also like the Chinese people to get fully acquainted with the quality of our Polish goods,” he added.
He likewise said that the 'One Belt, One Way' programme, which seeks to expand land and sea links between Asia and Europe, is an excellent opportunity for the development of China, Asia and Europe, including Poland.
Speaking generally, the Polish president said that China's economic advances in recent years marked “China's return to its great, historically legitimate place” in the world.
On Tuesday, Duda will be taking part in the '16 + 1' forum, which brings together delegates from Central and Eastern European countries with those from China in Suzhou, in the south east of the country. He will also meet Prime Minister of China Li Keqiang. (nh/rk)
