Polish president Andrej Duda talked with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping about buying the Chinese Covid-19 vaccine, his aide said, as the country looked for ways to speed up vaccination of its citizens. The health minister told in a press conference that the UK strain is found in 70 percent of infections in the country’s current third wave.
China pays great attention to relations with Poland and is willing to strengthen them, provide Poland with Covid-19 vaccines and support the import of Polish agri-food products.
The Chinese leader also emphasised that during the pandemic, the transport of goods by rail connections connecting China with Poland and Europe increased to a record level.
He also stated that China will promote increased imports of high-quality agri-food products from Poland by creating cooperation mechanisms between China and Central and Eastern Europe. He assessed that the completion of the negotiations on the comprehensive EU-China investment agreement would contribute to broadening the field of Polish-China cooperations.
