PR dla Zagranicy
Some 800 foreigners of Polish descent and Polish emigrants are set to descend on Warsaw for a jamboree to mark Poland's centenary of independence.
Meetings, discussion panels and fora on science, culture and religion are to be held at the parliament building in Warsaw.
Participants in the event will also meet President Andrzej Duda, the speakers of both houses of Polish parliament and other politicians.
It is the fifth time the jamboree has been held. It aims to bring together people with Polish origins and roots in their homeland once a year.
This year, the event coincides with celebrations in Poland of the centennial since the country regained its independence after more than 120 years of partitions and foreign rule. (vb/pk)
