    Deputy Minister Joanna Wronecka met in Warsaw on Thursday with Shahriar Alam, the State Minister at the Bangladeshi Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The talks focused primarily on political and economic issues and the search for new areas of bilateral cooperation.

    "Our political and economic contacts in the last decade were insufficient," Deputy Minister Wronecka said. "I am counting on this situation to change and for these relations to be reinvigorated," she stressed. As an example of the positive trend in this context, she mentioned the visit to Dhaka by a Sejm and Senate delegation as well as the visit to Warsaw by the Bangladeshi Minister of Food, which took place this month.

     


    The topics of the Warsaw meeting pertained primarily to economic relations, including the possibility of reducing Poland’s adverse trade balance with relation to Bangladesh. Also discussed were prospects for cooperation in the field of mining, defence, machinery and environmental protection, as well as in energy and agriculture. 


    Both sides stressed the importance of regular bilateral contacts. The prospect of cooperation in multilateral fora, including Poland’s candidature for a seat on the United Nations Security Council in 2018-19, was also touched upon. 


    The visit of the Minister of State in Bangladesh’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has a strong economic focus. The official delegation included representatives of the most important business circles in Bangladesh. 


    In addition to meetings in select Polish ministries, the programme of the visit also included a business seminar organized by the Polish Chamber of Commerce and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which was attended by Polish entrepreneurs.
