The delegations discussed joint projects in the areas of nuclear energy, fossil energy, energy infrastructure, and cybersecurity. The delegations particularly noted the results of cooperation in liquefied natural gas (LNG) trade, as demonstrated by contracts concluded between Polish and American companies for the natural gas supplies. Both delegations agreed on possible cooperation on the expansion of Poland’s natural gas infrastructure.

The delegations also informed about plans to hold a U.S.-Poland Nuclear Industrial Forum in mid-November. The Forum is intended to bring together companies from both countries to support development of Poland’s nuclear power programme.
