Premier Li Keqiang said on Nov 27 that Beijing is ready to work with Warsaw to step up win-win cooperation. In a meeting with Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo, he said he hoped that both countries would tap the full potential of the intergovernmental cooperation committee in managing exchanges and cooperation between them and get more things done.

China is willing to enhance communication and coordination on international affairs with Poland, which is to become a nonpermanent member of the UN Security Council next year, Premier Li added.

Meanwhile, China stands ready to align its development strategies with Poland and deepen cooperation in such fields as transportation, logistics and infrastructure, he said.

Szydlo said Poland sees relations with China as being very important. Her country hopes to give full play to the intergovernmental cooperation committee, explore cooperation in economy, trade and investment, and strengthen mutually beneficial cooperation in infrastructure, logistics and agriculture.

Premier Li and Latvian Prime Minister Maris Kucinskis on Nov 27 agreed to jointly strengthen cooperation in a wide range of areas.

China is willing to further align the Belt and Road Initiative with Latvia’s development strategy, and help Latvia build up its infrastructure, including its ports, so as to revitalize the maritime passage and boost cooperation between China and the Baltic states, as well as the northern European countries, Premier Li said.

He said he hopes that the two sides will continue to facilitate personnel exchanges and enhance cooperation in education, scientific research and Sinology.

Kucinskis said the two countries have made progress in logistics and transportation cooperation, and have actively conducted third-party cooperation, adding that there are many more ambitious projects for them to cooperate on. He said his country will take advantage of its geographic location and conduct logistics and freight cooperation with China.
