Official visit by President of Italian Republic Carlo Ciampi in Poland

On March 14th, 2000, President of the Italian Republic Carlo Azeglio Ciampi, paid an official two-day visit to Poland. After a face-to-face meeting and bilateral talks held by the Polish and Italian delegations, President Aleksander Kwasniewski told reporters: "This is a consecutive official visit being paid to Poland by the President of the Italian Republic, and this fact clearly indicates that the Polish-Italian relations are at a very high level. Poland enjoys the support which Italy is lending to us on the path towards the European Union. With great pleasure we have listened to the words uttered by the President, who forcefully spoke of the necessity to expand the Union and perceived a strong position of Poland. We expect that the enlargement process will proceed with due speed. We pin much hope on the year 2000 and the completion of the institutional reforms within the European Union. We are convinced that Italy can help us a lot. As for bilateral relations, we talked of the high level of Italian investment in Poland, of growing trade exchange, being concerned, however, over Poland`s trade deficit in relations with Italy. We also talked about cultural exchange, including, among other topics, presidential patronage over the Queen Bona Exhibition, which is being organised by the University and Museum of Bari and the Wawel Castle and the National Museum." On March 15th, the President of the Italian Republic met with Sejm Speaker Maciej Plazynski, delivered a speech at parliament and visited Krakow, Oswiecim (Auschwitz) and Brzezinka (Birkenau), where he laid a wreath at the Monument to the Nations.
