The leading topic of this year’s summit that was held in Croatia‘s Dubrovnik, was building new bridges through openness, innovation and partnership.

The Prime Minister declared the summit a success. This format is appropriate, as the countries of Central and Eastern Europe share a similar approach when it comes to economic and investment policy, and this has been the approach adopted in our negotiations with China.

During the meeting with China’s Premier, the head of the government touched upon issues having to do with the Polish sectors of meat and cosmetics, as well as industrial products. He also highlighted that Poland is interested in attracting Chinese investors.

The 16+1 platform includes 11 EU Member States (Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary), 5 European countries from outside the EU (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia, Serbia) and the People’s Republic of China. Greece also joined the 16+1 format.

The Prime Minister also took part in the opening of the exhibition dedicated to cooperation in the field of education.
