    After the meetings, he made an entry on his blog: “It is our satisfaction to see that the Indo-Polish relations are very good. We have strong economic ties and well-developed business relationships, and we are involved in a coherent political dialogue. The fast growth of the Indian economy, its huge potential, and also a noticeable increase in India’s importance on global markets let us believe that our countries may benefit from substantial opportunities for activating bilateral trade. We also look forward to attracting more interest among Indian investors. We also have offers of collaboration in the IT, ICT and high-tech sectors, in the area of biotechnology and medical devices, which are already exported to India.”


    Deputy Prime Minister Piechociński further noted that the Indian market is very attractive for foreign investors and that India is the second most popular destination for Polish direct investments in Asia (after Singapore). He mentioned two largest Polish investments in India: the Can Pack packaging plant and a dressing pack factory owned by Toruńskie Zakłady Materiałów Opatrunkowych, a manufacturer of sanitary articles and medical devices.


    The Polish seminar entitled “Prospects of the Development of Economic and Investment Co-operation between Poland and India” is to take place on 12 January during Vibrant Gujarat Summit.
