I want to see Poland in G20, says president

Andrzej Duda, the Polish president, said on Tuesday that he would like to see Poland join the G20 group of wealthiest countries.

Speaking at a meeting with officials from the Polish Investment and Trade Agency (PAIH), Duda said that although Poland was not a G20 member he was determined that it would join the group.

"One thing we haven't managed to do is join the G20 group, although we're nearly there. My great ambition is for us to join. Who knows which president will have the satisfaction and pleasure of leading Poland into G20. I have silent hopes that it will be me," Duda said.
