    Poland and Canada Strengthen Ties to Address Global Challenges

    At Canada’s Darlington Nuclear Generating Station, Poland’s Prime Minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, emphasized the growing bond between Poland and Canada, particularly in the face of significant energy, economic, and security challenges. During his address on Friday, Morawiecki underscored the current global uncertainties, including the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the energy crisis, disrupted supply chains, and climate change.

    Morawiecki stressed the necessity of finding new technological solutions that are stable, environmentally friendly, and beneficial to both people and businesses. To illustrate the potential for collaboration, he recounted his recent visit to a company involved in the construction of the world’s first Small Modular Reactor (SMR). This visit revealed promising prospects for Poland and Canada to cooperate in the field of new energy technology.

    The Prime Minister further disclosed that the management of the SMR company expressed interest in Poland as a prospective collaboration partner. In a bid to accelerate its path to energy independence from Russia, Poland is making plans to acquire several SMRs from the United States.

    The strengthening ties between Canada and Poland come at a critical time, as both nations recognize the urgency of addressing global challenges and the need for innovative solutions in the energy sector. With Poland’s ambitious goal of diversifying its energy sources and reducing reliance on Russia, cooperation with Canada in developing SMR technology marks a significant step forward. As the world grapples with the consequences of ongoing conflicts and environmental crises, international partnerships and advancements in sustainable energy will play a pivotal role in shaping a more secure and resilient future.
