Slovenia and Poland are set to deepen their ties, focusing on enhanced cooperation in cybersecurity and digital technologies, as highlighted during a recent business forum attended by both nations' presidents

In a notable convergence of economic and digital diplomacy, Slovenia and Poland are poised to elevate their bilateral relations, particularly in the realms of cybersecurity and digital technologies. This development emerged during a business forum attended by Polish President Andrzej Duda, held alongside the Ski Jumping World Cup final in Planica.

The forum underscored the robust partnership between the two nations, with existing collaborations spanning infrastructure, automotive, energy, and smart technologies. Slovenian President Nataša Pirc Musar emphasized the critical role of cybersecurity, advocating for an integrated EU-level approach to bolster defenses, reflecting the broader sentiment of unity in digital fortification efforts.

The potential for enhanced cooperation was also echoed by President Duda, who highlighted the burgeoning trade ties and identified digital technology, transport, and logistics as key sectors ripe for joint initiatives. Duda’s remarks underlined the increasing interdependence and opportunities for Polish enterprises within the Slovenian market, emphasizing the strategic significance of sectors like energy and the burgeoning green economy.

The forum was not just a platform for presidential dialogues but also facilitated concrete business engagements. Rok Capl of SPIRIT Slovenia and representatives from the Polish investment and trade agency PAIH inked a memorandum of understanding, signaling a commitment to fostering economic ties and innovation in cybersecurity and artificial intelligence.

Moreover, the signing of a cooperation agreement between the Slovenian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Digital Poland marks a significant step towards tangible collaboration in information technology and telecommunications.

With Poland ranking as Slovenia’s ninth-largest trading partner and bilateral trade reaching €2.7 billion last year, the forum highlighted the dynamic and evolving economic relationship between the two nations, setting the stage for a future where digital and cyber domains are likely to play a pivotal role in their shared economic narrative.
