Poland to boost business ties with Lebanon

Polish Ambassador to Lebanon Przemyslaw Niesiolowski said Friday that his country aims at increasing cooperation between Polish and Lebanese businessmen, local media reported.

“We are going to increase cooperation between representatives of productive sectors in Poland and businessmen in South Lebanon,” he was quoted as saying by Elnashra, an online independent newspaper.

The ambassador’s remarks came during his meeting with Mohamed Hassan Saleh, head of Lebanese Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture in Sidon, south of Lebanon, to discuss ways of boosting ties between the two countries.

Niesiolowski also said his country will work on boosting trade ties with Lebanon in addition to other economic relations.

Lebanon and Poland have discussed last year the potential of strengthening ties. Lebanese President Michel Aoun welcomed the intention of some Polish companies to participate in development projects as well as in the oil and gas exploration sector.
