CHINA AND POLAND: ECONOMIC LINKAGES WITHIN THE COMPREHENSIVE STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP

GU Hongfei (Hongfei Gu, Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute of European Studies, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS)), guhf@cass.org.cn

Poland is the largest economic, trade and investment partner of China in Central and Eastern Europe. In recent years, the comprehensive strategic partnership between China and Poland has developed steadily and made positive progress. Still, some problems persist in economic and trade cooperation, such as the expansion of Poland’s trade deficit with China, the small scale of mutual investment, and the lack of awareness of China’s SMEs on the Polish economy, trade and investment environment. This article begins with an analysis of the economic performance of Poland since its accession to the EU, then evaluates the development of China-Poland cooperation from the perspective of economic interaction in the fields of trade and investment, and aims to provide a useful reference for strengthening economic and trade cooperation with bilateral states.

Keywords: China-Poland relations, trade, investment, cooperation between China with Central and Eastern European countries
