Polish President Andrzej Duda has visited Norway to attend the Polish-Norwegian Economic Forum in Oslo. As a result, the political approval for gas supply to Poland from Norway has been made. Also Denmark has offered its support for the construction of the Baltic Pipe (a gas link that would connect Poland and Norwegian gas fields through the Danish infrastructure as part of the route). The state-run Polish gas company PGNiG bought in 2014 shares in four fields on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The gas supply from Norway as well as the LNG supplies to the Świnoujście terminal are part of Poland's plan to reduce its reliance on gas supplies from Russia. The Baltic Pipe would also secure gas supply to Poland, Ukraine, Slovakia and the Baltic states or even Finland.

I think one of the problems of the euro zone is this macro-economic imbalance – in our jargon that means very uneven development within the euro zone. We must fix that, whether Britain stays or leaves. But I think if it left, that would force the other member states to realize: now is the time to act. And in any case, after June 23, we’ll need to discuss the future structure of the European Union.” Source: Global Conversation Source: Global Conversation
