WARSAW - Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong received a welcome at a ceremony at the Chancellery of Prime Minister of Poland on Thursday morning.

Mr Lee, who is accompanied by a business delegation, is on his first official visit to Poland.

He and Polish Minister Donald Tusk, who had visited Singapore in November last year, then held talks and will have lunch.

On Wednesday, Mr Lee told a gathering of Polish and Singapore businessmen that both countries were well placed to work together for mutual benefit.

"Singapore can be a gateway for Polish companies in Asia, just as Poland can be one gateway for Singapore companies looking at Europe, in particular central and Eastern Europe," he said at the Poland-Singapore Business Forum.
