Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki on Monday started a two-day visit to the Japanese capital by meeting with representatives of a major Japanese business association Nippon Keidanren.

During his address to the participants in the event, Morawiecki declared that Poland is ready to welcome Japanese producers and investors and wants to develop economic cooperation between the two countries, including energy, electromobility and new technologies.

Among the common challenges for Japan and Poland, he mentioned energy transformation, which, he said, would have to take into account energy security and the interests of society.

"Japan's dynamic development and advanced technologies are admired and respected all over the world," Morawiecki said. He added that Poland was "looking closely" at Japanese solutions when planning transformation towards a more innovative economy.

Nippon Keidanren is the largest business organisation in Japan associating management staff of the country's largest enterprises. Established in 2002, it is considered the most important lobbying group in the country.
