He also urged Nigerians to work towards improving their product quality and standard to meet the European Union quality control as this would boast and increase Nigerians exports to Poland.

He said: “While there has been a significant turnover between Nigeria and Poland in recent years, there is still the need for both countries to strengthen their relationship and take advantage of the enormous economic opportunities present in both countries.”
