Polish Prime Minister: Poland, Hungary discuss plans for regional bank
Poland and Hungary are discussing plans to establish a regional development bank with the involvement of the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiewcki said in Warsaw late on Wednesday, Reuters reported.
The bank would finance infrastructure projects in central Europe, he said, shortly after talks on economic and political cooperation with his Hungarian counterpart Viktor Orbán in Budapest.
The four Visegrád countries are important constituents of the European Union, contributing to its economic growth and stability, Morawiecki told.
“We strongly confirmed [with Prime Minister Orbán] that we’re interested. If Czechs and Slovaks respond positively we could quickly set up this bank,” Morawiecki said without going into further detail.
Hungary and Poland, together with the Czech Republic and Slovakia, comprise the Visegrád group of countries.
