On 30 June 2016, a delegation of three entrepreneurs from the People’s Republic of China visited the Port of Gdansk, accompanied by representatives of the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone.

It was yet another visit by guests from China in that same week. They expressed an interest in establishing co-operation with Poland’s largest port located in Gdansk. The visit of the Chinese delegation, which included representatives of the China & Poland Friendship Association, the China & Poland Investment Development Company, and Novara Energy, was one of the scheduled meetings planned for their four-day stay in the Tricity.

The meeting at the Port of Gdansk Authority SA was hosted by Lukasz Greinke, President of the Board, who invited the guests to a lecture about the port, following the official welcoming ceremony. This short visit to the Port of Gdansk provided an opportunity to present information about what we do, our investment projects and potential development scenarios for the coming years. The concept for the construction of a new deepwater terminal at the port, the so-called Central Port, met with great interest. This confirms that thanks to its convenient location, existing ocean links and rapidly growing importance on the logistical map of the world, Gdansk is more and more frequently becoming an object of interest among Chinese entrepreneurs.

All in all, the Port of Gdansk’s recently intensified relations with the Chinese are a result of last week’s official government visits, which took place in Warsaw, and the meetings at the port and the topics of the discussions are confirmation that there is a real chance of expanding business co-operation between Poland and China.
