Polish-Nigerian consultations take place in Warsaw


WARSAW, July 4 (Xinhua) -- Launching a strategic dialogue between Poland and Nigeria is an important step towards expanding Poland's activity in Africa, Poland's Deputy Foreign Minister Katarzyna Kacperczyk said Friday.

Kacperczyk made the remarks while meeting Nigeria's Deputy Foreign Minister Martin Uhomoibhi as the Polish-Nigerian consultations took place here.

The main topics of the Polish-Nigerian consultations included global and regional security, the internal situation in Nigeria and prospects for developing economic cooperation between the two countries.

Officials from both sides discussed the current status of Polish-Nigerian political relations, taking into account the results of the EU-Africa summit held in Brussels in April.

The talks also touched on cooperation between the two countries' defense industries as well as scientific and cultural cooperation.

Polish businesses operate in Nigeria in the pharmaceutical, IT and furniture sectors, among others.

The next opportunity to expand contacts between the two countries' business communities and administrations will be the second Poland Africa Congress planned for November in Lodz.
