and his wife are in India today for talks on bi-lateral trade relations, part o
f a tour, which includes Vietnam, to increase Polish-Asian trade and investment.
The talks on trade and defence issues will be a continuation of talks between th
e two countries which began with the President of Indiaâ s visit to Poland in April 2
009.

forum in Bangalore where he will be meeting with representatives of top Indian c
ompanies.On Tuesday, PM Tusk will have talks with President Pratibha Patil, vice
president and chairman of the upper house of parliament Ansari Mohammad Hamid,
Minister of Foreign Affairs Somanahalli Mallaiah Krishna and head of the
Indian National Congress, Sonia Gandhi.
Discussions will focus on opportunities for investment and economic cooperation
and will also address cooperation in culture and education, European issues and
combating terrorism.

The trade gap - in Indiaâ s favour - will be one of the issues PM Tusk will raise dur
ing his stay in the sub continent. Though Poland exports railway and mining equi
pment, chemicals, metals and machinery it imports far more from India, including
cash crops tea, coffee, tobacco, pepper, fibre and cotton products.
Tusk is also anxious to raise more foreign direct investment from Asia. At the e
nd of 2008, the value of Indian investments accounted for just 0.04 percent of f
oreign direct investment in Poland.Next year's EU- India Summit will take place
during the Polish presidency of the European Union.

Minister Nguyen Tan Dung, President Nguyen Minh Triết and the ruling Communist Party
