The Polish-Chinese International Conference held on April 25 in Exhibition & Congress Centre - Opole is another step towards the realization of the idea of building a close relationship with Chinese partners to conduct joint research, business ventures and local government. The event is an immense opportunity to meet various representatives from science, business, local government projects and members of the Polish government together with their Chinese partners and to exchange opinions on the most important, current and future issues in relations between Poland and China as well. We are expecting participation of experts and specialists from Poland and abroad as well as the entrepreneurs considering investing in China. This event is a continuation of the Polish-Chinese International Symposium called “One Belt One Road: policy, economy and technology” which was Poland's first international symposium on the New Silk Road held at the Opole University of Technology on 25 February 2016.

I have recently had the privilege of hosting China wide cooperation sessions at many conferences - including the symposium with the Deputy Prime Minister Jaroslaw Gowin, "Foreign Students in Poland 2017" (27-28 February, Cracow) or at The 11th Confucius Institute Conference in Kunming, conference called "Educational Davos" (10-11 December 2016). However, I believe that Opole is the place where a discussion about cooperation with the Middle States has its strongest justification. Here, last February, the first Polish conference "One Belt One Road" was held. During the meeting the greatest economists, politicians and scientists discussed the largest economic and cultural exchange project between modern Europe and Asia - the so-called New Silk Road. This is the place where the first partnership agreement was signed between the Chongqing Jiaotong University and the Opole University of Technology. Recalling the lesser-known thought of Confucius: the mechanic that would perfect his work must first sharpen his tools, I kindly invite you to attend the Conference! Its deliberations will be exactly what sharpening tools is. Preparing for one of the biggest challenges facing Opole, Poland, and the world.
