Poland sees considerable potential in strengthening cooperation with Taiwan, especially in the fields of trade and technology, Poland’s top envoy in Taiwan told CNA in a recent interview.
“Taiwan is an attractive trade partner for Poland and, I believe, for other countries in Central and Eastern Europe,” said Bartosz Ryś, acting chief of the Polish Office in Taipei.
According to Ryś, Poland could be a great fit for Taiwanese companies looking to relocate their manufacturing or business operations to Europe due to its strategic location, good infrastructure, large domestic market, strong consumption, and highly skilled workers. The potential for cooperation between Poland and Taiwan on electric vehicles could be particularly fruitful, he said.
“Poland is the biggest supplier of lithium-ion car batteries or their components in Europe. Overall, the prospects for cooperation between Polish and Taiwanese companies in the EV industry look very promising.”
Ryś also suggested that Taiwan can participate in the Three Seas Initiative and Three Seas Initiative Investment Fund to strengthen its cooperation with countries bordering the Adriatic, the Baltic and the Black Sea in the development of infrastructure in the energy, transport, and digital sectors.
