Prime Minister will also meet with representatives of the largest French employers' union in the French capital and lay flowers under the ‘Solidarity’ plaque commemorating mass demonstrations by Poles and the French in December 1981 in protest against the introduction of martial law in Poland and the support of the Solidarity trade union.

 

‘The agenda of talks between the Prime Minister and President Emmanuel Macron will include bilateral issues, including prospects for the development of Polish-French economic cooperation. The meeting will also be an opportunity to discuss EU affairs, including in the context of preparations for the upcoming European Council,’ said government spokesman Piotr Müller in a press release on Tuesday.

 

‘The leaders will also discuss the possibilities of strengthening trilateral cooperation involving Poland, France and Germany within the framework of the so-called 'Weimar Triangle’. The year 2021 marks the 30thanniversary of the initiation of cooperation in this group,’ he added. 

 

Müller also mentioned the implementation of the Reconstruction Plan, climate policy and energy transition, as well as security and defence issues among the topics of the Prime Minister's talks with the French President.

 

Macron and Morawiecki are also expected to discuss the situation in Belarus and the ongoing post-election protests there. 

 

‘Poland has consistently pointed out the need for the European Commission to publish an economic plan for a democratic Belarus. The idea of preparing a comprehensive plan for supporting the systemic transformation of Belarus was put forward by Poland with the support of the Visegrad Group countries,’ noted Mr Müller in the press release. 

 

The government spokesman informed that during his visit to Paris Prime Minister will also meet with the representatives of the largest French employers' union and that the meeting will be attended by companies interested in investing in Poland, among others in the energy, infrastructure and IT sectors.

 

The last bilateral meeting between Morawiecki and Macron took place in February last year when the French president was on a visit to Warsaw.
