At the Kasprowy Wierch peak in Zakopane, one of the most popular ski areas in Poland, the presidents talked about the development of road infrastructure and Slovak investments in Poland in the framework of the Three Seas initiative that involves countries on the Adriatic, the Baltic and the Black Sea.
“We are close countries, but infrastructural connections that support tourism and fast transport are in a poor state and we have to work on it,” President Duda told reporters on Kasprowy Wierch.
He added that both countries wanted the infrastructure between them to be developed including motorways to be built there. Following the formal meeting, the two presidents also went skiing together. Early on Saturday President Duda opened an annual cross-border ski run near Zakopane linking Polish and Slovak villages of Witów and Oravice. He called it a local project which fits in a greater programme that aims to obliterating borders in the region. (mo/rg)
