    “The ninety years of Polish-Peruvian relations have been marked by harmonious and seminal cooperation thanks in part to the work of many excellent diplomats,” said Undersecretary of State Katarzyna Kacperczyk at the opening of an exhibition on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Poland and Peru. The exhibition was organised by the Embassy of Peru in Warsaw.

    Deputy chief of Poland’s diplomacy noted that the two countries have comparable economic potential. Poland is the sixth economy in the EU, while Peru – the sixth in Latin America. Peru’s Ambassador to Poland Martha Chavarri Dupuy said that, although diplomatic relations were officially established in 1923, close contracts between the two countries date back to earlier times, according to historical accounts.

     

    The exhibition shows the history of mutual relations and the accomplishments of outstanding Poles who were active in Peru: Ernest Malinowski, Edward Jan Habich, Ryszard Jaxa Małachowski, Father Edmund Szeliga, and Ferdynad Szyszło. It also features the achievements of Polish archaeologists in Peru, like the recent unprecedented find made in the Huarmey river valley, among others. Polish researchers have discovered there an unlooted royal tomb dating from the pre-Incan Wari civilisation.
