Poland’s ambassador to Pakistan, Piotr A. Opalinskit has shown an interest in Pakistan’s agriculture, pharmaceutical and leather sectors while adding that his country is looking forward to joining CPEC, one of the largest infrastructure projects the world has ever seen.

In a meeting on Wednesday, September 5, 2018, Piotr pointed out that “Poland enjoys very special ties with Pakistan which would deepen with the passage of time.”

President FPCCI Ghazanfar Bilour and Chairman Coordination of FPCCI Malik Sohail were also present in this meeting, in which Ambassador Piotr expressed that,” there is a vast prospect for expansion of trade between the two friendly countries.”

The ambassador stated that Warsaw tries to take part in Pakistan’s socio-economic uplift and enhancing its defence capabilities.

He mentioned that some Polish companies are engaged in helping Pakistan to develop the coal-mining industry, while other companies have been working on promoting the energy sector of Pakistan.

Apart from this, the Ambassador highlighted that Pakistan is known for exporting high quality surgical and sports goods as well as textiles, leather garments and high-quality Basmati rice to Poland.

According to him, “both the countries have much more to offer to each other in terms of economic cooperation which is of fundamental importance in the international relations.”

President FPCCI Ghazanfar Bilour said that the trade turnover between Pakistan and Poland hovers around € 400 million but there is a scope for even more significant growth in the future.

Malik Sohail added that FPCCI is forming a delegation to visit Poland in the month of November to explore opportunities and enhance ties with the business community.
