    “This year’s 80th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations between Poland and Bolivia is a good opportunity to tighten mutual relations between our countries,” said Undersecretary of State Leszek Soczewica at the first round of Poland-Bolivia political consultations. The talks took place in La Paz on 16th March.

    “Our relations should be marked by pragmatism and an understanding of our mutual needs,” emphasised the deputy chief of Polish diplomacy during the talks with his Bolivian counterpart, Juan Carlos Alurralde Tejada. The Polish deputy minister pointed at the potential areas of collaboration: academic exchange, cultural projects and closer economic and financial relations. “Poland is ready to share its transformation experience with Bolivia, including in how to promote innovation,” said deputy minister Soczewica. He also recalled that Bolivia is the main recipient of Polish development assistance in Latin America. On the margins of the consultations, the deputy chief of the Polish MFA visited the EU delegation where he met the ambassadors of EU posts based in Bolivia.

     

    The following day, on 17 March, Deputy Minister Soczewica met in Lima with his Peruvian counterpart, Claudio de la Puente Ribeyro. “For over 90 years now, Poland and Peru have had a lot in common – values, transformation experience and the significant roles the two countries play in their respective regions. This speaks in favour of regular, high-level consultations,” emphasised Deputy Minister Leszek Soczewica. He also pointed out that the free trade agreement with the EU and the planned abolition of short-term visas between the EU and Peru offer an opportunity to develop economic and tourist relations. The deputy ministers discussed cultural and scientific cooperation that is being developed between Poland and Peru, including in the field of archaeology. The deputy chief of Polish diplomacy also met with representatives of Lima’s Polish diaspora.
