Poland and Hungary are discussing plans to establish a regional development bank with the involvement of the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiewcki said in Warsaw. The bank would finance infrastructure projects in central Europe, he said, shortly after talks on economic and political cooperation with his Hungarian counterpart Viktor Orban in Budapest. "We strongly confirmed [with Prime Minister Orban] that we’re interested. If Czechs and Slovaks respond positively we could quickly set up this bank," Morawiecki said without going into further detail. Hungary and Poland, together with the Czech Republic and Slovakia, comprise the Visegrad Group of countries.
