Roundup: Sino-Polish ties witness sustained development
font size    

Top Chinese legislator Wu Bangguo will visit Poland from May 24-26, a visit which is widely regarded as a new impetus to boost relations between China and Poland.

China and Poland established diplomatic relations in 1949, and the bilateral relations have weathered the ups and downs of the international arena.

Observers here spoke highly of the frequent exchange of high- level visits between the two countries in recent years, saying that the regular political dialogue between the two have helped increase mutual political trust.

In 1997, then Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski paid a state visit to China, the first such visit to China undertaken by a Polish head of state since the two countries set up diplomatic relations.

In June 2004, Chinese President Hu Jintao paid a successful state visit to Poland, during which the two presidents announced the establishment of the Sino-Polish friendly cooperation partnership, ushering in a new era of their bilateral ties.

On the Taiwan issue, the Polish government has always adhered to the one-China policy.

Apart from political dialogue, China and Poland have achieved a lot in economic cooperation and bilateral trade, especially in the new century.

In 2001, the bilateral trade volume stood at 1.243 billion U.S. dollars, and ever since the figures have continuously risen.

Chinese official statistics show that the Sino-Polish trade volume hit a record high of 4.672 billion dollars in 2006.

On mutual investments, official figures show that Chinese companies have so far invested 150 million dollars in Poland, while Polish companies have invested over 66 million dollars in the Chinese mainland.

On the cultural front, a jointly-sponsored movie titled "The Love in the Year of Tiger" was screened in both countries in 2006.

In 2005 and 2006, an activity called "culture day" to promote Polish and Chinese cultures took place in China and Poland respectively.

In 2006, the first Confucius College, a Chinese-language teaching school, was set up in Poland. Chinese diplomats said a dozen universities are now offering Chinese language teaching courses, adding that the popularity of the Chinese language is widespread in Poland.
