17 October 2012, 4 pm
Since Poland joined the European Union, it had become a new gateway to the European market for the Indian goods and services. It is important to note that India and Poland shared some uniqueness, though very different. Historically, both nations had a long fight for independence. Both nations experienced the nationalization process of their industries. They also equally experienced a period of socialist economic system and also enjoyed close relations with the Soviet Union. Most strikingly, both countries had undergone economic transformation whereby both systematically and gradually transited their economies from socialist models to capitalist one. In central Europe, Poland had been considered as the main partner of India, in terms of trade and economic cooperation. India viewed Poland as a link between it and the Western Europe. Both entities are in the process to reform their legal framework to improve political and socio-economic relations by reducing legal barriers.
