Taipei, Oct. 13 (CNA) Taiwan and Poland have signed two memorandums of understanding (MOUs) on cooperation and exchanges in the development of conformity assessment and renewable energy, according to a Friday press release issued by the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA).

According to the MOEA's Department of International Cooperation, Taiwan-Poland relations in trade, investment and development are at an all-time high since the first Taiwan-Poland Economic Consultations began in 2010.

One of the MOUs was signed by a representative of Taiwan's Financial Supervisory Commission and his Polish counterpart on the issue of conformity assessment, making it the first financial supervisory MOU Taiwan has signed with a country in Central Europe.

The MOU will be especially useful in making sure that Taiwansee products meet the standards set forth by the European Union's conformity assessment, the press release noted.

As countries that are both heavily invested in renewable energy, Taiwan and Poland also signed another MOU between the Taiwan Photovoltaic Industry Association and its Polish counterpart to work on developing renewable energy and reduce the pollution caused by fossil fuels.

Meanwhile, on the subject of smart cities, Taiwan invited the mayors of Poznan and Krakow, two Polish smart cities, to visit Taiwan next March to tour Taipei, which is also a smart city.
