Summary/Abstract: The intensity and quality of political and economic cooperation between Poland and India have not reached their full potential in the past 20 years, despite largely positive historical relations between these nations. Both are among the top twenty world economies, and are among the political leaders in their respective regions, so Poland and India must now explore ways to upgrade bilateral cooperation in the emerging multi-polar world. The success of economic transformations initiated in the early 90s, and stable economic growth experienced in both countries in recent years despite the global financial crisis, alongside the growing political influence of Poland in the European Union on the one hand and India’s rise on the world stage on the other, suggest a complementary relationship between these countries and promise extra benefits from closer links. The idea of a strategic partnership – an instrument deliberately employed in both countries’ foreign policies in recent years – now deserves to be given serious consideration in New Delhi and Warsaw.
