Taipei, May 3 (CNA) Poland welcomes more investment from Taiwanese businesses and is ready to deepen economic relations with Taiwan, the Polish envoy to Taiwan said Friday at a reception in Taipei held in celebration of Poland's National Day. Marek Wejtko, chief representative of the Warsaw Trade Office in Taipei, said during an address that he is optimistic that the double taxation between Poland and Taiwan could be lifted this year. "We also hope to get the final approval for exports of Polish pork to Taiwan very soon," Wejtko said at the reception attended by government officials and foreign envoys in Taiwan. In addition to trade, Wejtko said student and scientist exchanges between Poland and Taiwan are also becoming more fruitful. Today, around 700 Taiwanese students study in Poland and there are also many Polish students enrolled in programs in Taiwan, he added. Deputy Foreign Minister Simon Ko, who attended the reception, also expressed hope that Poland and Taiwan can sign an agreement on double taxation avoidance "as soon as possible" so as to expand bilateral trade and investment. He said trade between Taiwan and Poland reached US$840 million in 2012. (By Christie Chen)
