Polish president to visit Google, meet head of YouTube

Polish President Andrzej Duda was on Monday scheduled to visit the HQ of global internet giant Google and meet the head of YouTube on the last day of his official trip to the US.

Duda’s last stop on his six-day visit is Silicon Valley, where he was set visit Google’s headquarters and meet the CEO of YouTube, Susan Wojcicki, as well as Google vice president Kent Walker.

Duda was also scheduled to open a Polish-American Forum for New Technologies. The forum, set up by the Polish Investment and Trade Agency, will promote the Polish tech industry and will serve as a communication platform between Polish companies and world’s biggest IT firms, state news agency PAP reported.

“I expect that cooperation between Polish and American entities will flourish,” PAP cited Duda as saying.

The Polish president, accompanied by his wife Agata Kornhauser-Duda, last week met US leader Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump at the White House, where the two countries announced a deal on a stepped-up American military presence in Poland while also sealing a raft of economic agreements.

Polish state-run oil and gas company PGNiG last week announced the signing of an agreement with US company Venture Global LNG to buy an additional 1.5 million tonnes of LNG per year as part of efforts to diversify supplies.

In another agreement, Poland and the United States signed a memorandum of understanding on cooperation in civilian nuclear energy.

During his six-day trip to the United States, the Polish president visited Washington D.C., Texas and the western states of Nevada and California.
