    On the margins of the summit of the Central and Eastern European countries and China (16+1) in Sofia a short meeting between Polish Deputy Prime Minister and Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang took place while both sides also signed two economic agreements.

    In his speech at the plenary session Deputy Prime Minister Gowin underlined Poland’s readiness to continue its involvement in the regional cooperation with China. He noted that the 16+1 format allowed to develop multidimensional contacts between member states of the initiative – not only at the level of central administration, but also in the area of business, science and people-to-people interactions. At the same time he remarked that there needs to be a balance between the development of cooperation within the 16+1 and the dynamics of bilateral relations, especially within the framework of the Polish-Chinese comprehensive strategic partnership. He called for tangible actions towards building a balanced economic partnership between China and our region, based on equal market access. He further underlined the issue of transparency of the format and the importance of compatibility of the initiative with the values and principles of the EU.
