Polish Ambassador to Romania Marek Szczygiel says he wants the north-south corridor between the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea revitalised.
In a meeting with local authorities in Galati on Friday, Szczygiel asserted this very old commercial route from between the Romanian and Polish shores could be developed using European funds.
“We have discussed the possibilities of cooperation between Galati and Polish cities through exchanges of experience in using European funds and various plans of restoring, of reviving the north-south corridor between southeastern Romania and Poland’s seaside area. It is a very old commercial route and an excellent opportunity of development with European funds of this road and railroad corridor for the freight traffic between the Black Sea and the Baltic Sea,” Szczygiel declared according to Agerpres.
He insisted on the longtime ties between Poland and Galati, and mentioned this Danube port had hosted a Polish consulate during the interwar period. He announced the opening of a photo exhibition on Friday, at the Dunarea de Jos University in Galati, on Poland’s great poetess Kazimiera Illakowiczowna. It includes 38 panels of photographs and facsimiles of information text and archive documents, illustrating the Polish-Romanian relations in the 1920’s and during the World War II, and Illakowiczowna’s actions to improve the bilateral ties.
