The panel, titled "The Three Seas Initiative in a Challenging International Context," was attended by the leaders of Austria, Croatia and Romania, among other presidents.
The Polish leader welcomed the fact that, in the three years since the start of the Initiative, cooperation among participating countries is at such an advanced stage. "We are participating in the third Three Seas summit and the first Business Forum, an accompanying event, but one extremely import to us," noted President Duda.
According to Andrzej Duda these two significant events "are proof of the persistent development of the regional cooperation format." "We have not stopped in one place, we are not limiting ourselves solely to talks, we are not confining ourselves only to political theory," added the President.
"We want to be, and in reality we are, political practitioners, the co-creators of an effective and active Central Europe, on a global scale," stressed President Duda.
The Three Seas Initiative is a platform for cooperation of the presidents of twelve countries situated between the Adriatic, Baltic and Black Seas. Its aim is to strengthen the cohesion of the European Union by strengthening the infrastructure, energy and economic cooperation of Central European countries. (PAP)
