At the meeting with the Polish Ambassador, Grażyna Bernatowicz, who is leaving her post in the Czech Republic after four years of successful work, the Prime Minister Andrej Babiš spoke of bilateral Czech-Polish cooperation, regional formats as well as European matters. Over the last four years, the Czech-Polish cooperation further strengthened in areas such as economy, energy, transport infrastructure, security or the environment. An important platform for intensifying the relations between the Czech Republic and Poland is also the cross-border cooperation or cooperation as part of the Visegrad Group.
